An allée is a pastoral walkway through evenly planted trees. Tree-lined driveways and garden paths are allées that attract travelers into their destination in style. (The word “allée” is French for “way.”) Traversing an allée strengthens the impression that you has came.
A true allée has opposing trees planted to make visual symmetry, like this formal drive.

A rustic garden path forms an allée with a grove of birch trees leading to a low garden wall.
This allée, a brick path through saplings, arrives in a round patio.
This allée involving buildings is playful with rusted steel ball sculptures set on gravel.

Even though an allée consistently has opposing trees, the trail can be formal or informal in appearance. This allée has decomposed granite to the walkway, which is a natural-looking option.
