You know that scene in The Shining where Jack Nicholson’s son evades murder by darting through a maze of hedgerows?
The pandemic has homeowners hoping to recreate that — um — relaxing vibe.
Lars Howlett is the US’s premier labyrinth designer. They’re actually different from mazes — a maze has multiple dead ends. A labyrinth might be confusing, but there’s only one path.
Institutional labyrinth projects — schools, hospitals, and estates — are down, but private property owners are buying in. Howlett says the labyrinth “brings order out of a sense of chaos.”
But don’t take our word for it
There’s a vibrant community of labyrinthusiasts to help you get your calm on.
Bet you a chicken nugget we can find the end faster.
