Labyrinths

Labyrinths are ancient patterns whose single path leads to the center and back. Unlike a maze, which has multiple choices and dead ends and pits the walker against the maker in problem-solving which path to take. The labyrinth is designed to help the walker find the path, not lose it. Dating back 5000 years, the classical seven-circuit labyrinth and its variants can be found all over the world.

I do a wide variety of labyrinths. I use very diverse materials depending upon the site structure, needs of the community, and preferred materials of the clients.

  • concrete
  • crushed brick
  • street paint
  • prairie grasses
  • lawns
