Our front yard path must have curves in it! Curves are cool.
Paperbark, many Australian trees have bark like this - it helps to survive bush fires by insulating the living cambium below.
Would love a timber boardwalk/path through the front garden with some heavy metal mesh sections so plants grow underneath it too. Maybe replace some of the concrete pavers?

Potential 'look' for front border garden between driveway and boundary.
A potted water feature on the front deck with planting and even a small fountain for movement would be pretty cool.
