The view is rather short but I do love my front walk (and driveway). That was one of the things that sold me about the house 21 years ago. I eliminated the front grass then and now have a combo of ivy, pachysandra and unfortunately some other things that spring up right thru and need to be plucked out. Not too diligent about that... But good things also emerge from planting ages ago, like one little purple crocus fighting its way up thru the leaves.
