:“Gravel-'''walks''' are very necessary near the House; because, being soon dry after Rain, they are proper for walking on, in all Seasons. But then these should be but few, and those ought to be large and magnificient, proportionable to the Grandeur of the House and Garden. The principal of these '''Walks''' should be elevated parallel with the House, so as to form a [[Terrace]]: this should extend itself each way, in proportion to the Width of the Garden; so that from this there may be a Communication with the Sand-'''walks''', without going on the Grass; or there should be Side-'''Walks''' of Gravel to lead to them, that there may be a dry '''Walk''' continued quite through the Gardens. But there is not a more ridiculous Sight, than that of a straight Gravel-'''walk''', leading to the Front of the House, intersecting the Grass, so as to make it appear like the stiff formal Grass [[plot]]s frequently made in little Court-yards by Persons of low Taste.

:“The next thing to be observed is to continue a dry '''walk''', which should lead quite round the whole garden, for as Gardens are designed to promote the exercise of walking, the greater the extent of this dry '''walk''', the better it will answer the Intent . . . and such '''walks''', if laid either with Gravel or Sand, may lead through different [[Plantation]]s, gently winding about in an easy natural way, which will be more agreeable than those long strait '''walks''', which are too frequently seen in gardens.”

:“Sometimes grass-'''walks''' are used, but these are rather improper for general use in Kitchen-gardens, especially in such parts of the garden where wheel-barrows are obliged to come often, which would cut and greatly deface them; besides, they are apt to be wet and disagreeable in all wet weather, and in winter; ...
