Roads and Paths

Although any cutting and grading feels offensive -- like a scar upon the land, a road or path directs traffic along chosen corridors, limiting the impact to a property at large. In addition, when a road or path is properly sited with respect to the natural flow of the land, and replanted so that native plants are maintained, a road becomes almost invisible without traffic.
