The concerns I have with the stepping stone walkway (with grass in between the stones) combined with boxed hedges on the side are as follows:
- Since the soil under the boxed hedges needs to be "clean" and weed and grass free, will it be extremely difficult to maintain the "straight" grass line?
- Because the garage protrudes a bit in relation to the rest of the house, the boxed hedge on the RHS would have to be slightly shorter (pic 2 below). This would mean that the stepping stone pathway would need to end where the shorter hedge ends. Do you think this would look strange?
Please note: my drawing is not in proportion :(
