Movement ties landscape elements together into a holistic, sensory choreography of views, scents, sounds and feelings. Designing for movement through the landscape focuses as much on the journey as it does the destination.

Successful landscape designs attend to how, and at what speed, people move through space, whether they walk, run, cycle or drive. The particulars of each mode of movement are carefully considered to create subtle, tailored sequences of experiences for the visitor.  Effective designs intuitively draw you through the landscape, provide places of rest and contemplation, and avoid dead-ends or the need for backtracking. This is what makes some  paths, trails, and roads more enjoyable than others.
