Egregious wiggles :-)
We were at a local garden/park this afternoon and the first thing that we saw was a path that set off my wiggle aversion! The path split off from the main entrance path; you can see that scale makes a difference - both paths are wiggly but the main path (8' wide) looks better than the side path (4' wide). It's probably just plain impossible to make the broader path so wiggly as the width would force the wiggles to be spread out over a longer length. The paths:
The wiggly path particularly struck me as ridiculous as it led to this:
A closer view of the rose garden layout:
I think a nice smooth curved path would have satisfied both the apparent requirement for curves and not set up such a jarring contrast at the destination. This might not be too clear, but I mean something like this:
(I would also have smoothed out the wider path too but it is more tolerable than the small path...)
I really don't understand why it seems de regueur these days to make all paths wiggly in all contexts! Can someone explain that to me?
