Desire Path?

posted, 11/00/06
I have always been fascinated how; we, in the landscape industry use words. Especially how Designers use words to help describe what they are trying to design, to come up with a phrase that matches the situation or solution.

Have you ever seen a worn out path of grass in a lawn? Or a beat down path where people take a short cut? Well apparently there Is a phrase for it, and it seems so simple, so perfect That I can’t believe I haven’t used this phrase before . . . desire path.

I know this will now become part of my toolbox of phraseology, how cool!
