If you want the path to be open and want to cut down on vandalism, one
alternative is a fence to mark boundaries, and gates (open or latched) to
mark the paths. Especially when plants are small, it's a good idea to make
the boundaries and paths obvious. Sometimes nongardeners simply do not see
plants, or don't see the difference between weeds and cultivated plants.

We have a fence, which serves to mark the perimeter (with roses and
perennials around the outside) and to keep dogs out. Dog-walkers love to
use the path around the garden, and dogs do understand and respect gates,
so we can leave the gates open when working in the garden. This time of
year, the squirrels like to sit on the gates and eat tomatoes.
