What Is A Maze?
A maze is a puzzle in the form of a complex branching of passages through which you must find a route through to the exit. They
are made up of complex and confusing series of pathways and passages.
Some that lead to dead ends and others that trick you and deceive.
There is an almost mystical and magical feeling when you wander through these passageways. The pathways and walls are usually fixed and rigid although sometimes the walls themselves are made from flimsy materials.
Mazes can be made out of any sort of material
Suggested Materials For Making Maze Gardens
Ribbons or rope
Crops of corn or maise
And for a fun use actual people
Mazes that are made using maise, corn or any seasonal crop can be built very large and their shape is usually changed each year as they are grown seasonally.
Mazes that are made using corn growing can also appear in many different designs. Some are created to tell stories to play out a theme.

Do You Know How To Solve A Maze Garden?
The Wall Flower Traversal Rule or more commonly known as the Right Hand Rule is the easiest way to solve a maze garden, infact any type of maze.
The wall flower, the best known rule for getting through a maze is also known as either the left-handed or right-handed rule. The reason for this is that a maze's walls are simply connected together onto the maze's outer boundary.
Keeping one hand in contact with a wall you are guaranteed not to get lost and you will eventually find your way to the exit. Place your right hand on the wall as soon as you enter the maze.
On the picture above start at the red top arrow and hugging the right side move through the maze until you reach the end. You can print the image out if it makes it easier.
