With this garden, you will have a pathway that stands out with a variety of leaf colors, different textures, and some highlighted flowers. Berberis thunbergii 'Crimson Pygmy' (a deciduous shrub with thorns/spines) provides many benefits including being resistant to deer, drought, dry soil, erosion, heat, pollution, and urban conditions. Prunus laurocerasus 'Otto Luyken' (an evergreen shrub) is resistant to dry soil, heavy shade, pollution, poor soil, salt, and urban conditions. Spiraea japonica 'Gold Mound' and Spiraea japonica 'Lime Mound' (both deciduous shrubs) tolerate deer, erosion, air pollution, and clay.
Therefore, this Paver Pathway garden has many benefits as well as attracts birds and butterflies.
