My garden is a garden to be looked at. It's tiny, and it's filled with visually-interesting things which include plants, rocks, and small sculptures. If you have a garden like that, you need to design it so that people can walk up to things. I have always called small, visually-interesting things "walk-up-to-its". And the most important thing that you need to design for your "walk-up-to-its" is a place for people to stand. You don't want them strolling up into the planting area, or walking on gravel or mud, or even wet grass.

This is a garden to be looked at. With care.
