Re: Labryinth gardens

Melody, here are a couple websites if you haven't already found them.  The
local (Albany, CA) Episcopal Church has a labyrinth made out of brick in
their patio.  This is the kind that is just flat on the surface and you walk
toward the center.
    I believe some mazes / labyrinths using plant material have been created
in the past few years but you are right that it is quite time-consuming and
high maintenance.  I think laying out a brick one would be challenge enough!
    I still remember the maze at the Washington Cathedral where I was taken
as a child.  I believe that one was planted in box, and the herby smell in
the sun was wonderful.
