I love a garden with mystery. One that invites the viewer to wonder in further to see what they might discover. One of the ways to create mystery in garden design is with curves, or more specifically, curved paths.
My garden in Laguna was laid out around existing plants and trees and eventually developed into a series of interconnecting paths that crisscrossed the property. Unfortunately the gardens in San Juan are almost all straight lines with very little mystery. The picture above is one of the few walkways that you cannot see the entire layout ahead.
