The path of least resistance

(picture of path) This picture shows the view from the door of one building to the door of another. A lot of people walk between these two doors. Whoever designed this court yard had the walkways go around both sides of the court yard.

Notice the dirt path between the two doors? (See arrow.) People have worn this path by stepping over the wall and walking across what used to be the grass. This path shows where the walkway should be.

Design suggestion

Many people will take the path of least resistance. Figure out where people are going to walk before putting in a walkway.
