Re: project

a new long-term project that I'm about to start for our church...we have a
huge expanse of lawn that stretches between the Church and the Rectory and
somehow, today, it just popped into my head that this space would be
perfectly suited to a living rosary walk... {snip}
I'm going to spend the winter putting together a plan for this.  Any ideas

Here's how I would organize my thinking.
1)What's available on site (fence, rocks, benches, existing ground cover
2) what's your budget?
3) What ambiance do you want? (I'm guessing peace, contemplation, serenity.)
4) Do you have an overall color scheme? How will that effect the mood?
Fragrant blooms/foliage?
5) Will some or all materials be donated? purchased?
6) Will this be used year round? If so "hardscape" & bare shape of the
plantings is a big consideration.

I like fragrance so I would be looking at thymes, scented geraniums,
rosemary, lilies, hyacinth, narcissus, daphnes, roses, boxwood...
Knot gardens would be labor intensive but lovely.
Have you thought of incorpoating a labyrinth?
