It could be from a simple one with only a single path from start to end or a complicated one with several paths leading to the end follow by many branches of dead ends.
Once you have decided on the type, do a rough sketch of your maze on the graph paper with the right scales in place. You can choose from a variety of plants from corns to flowers for a garden maze or opt for the conventional choice, Boxwood. Do an initial pattern layout of your maze on the chosen ground by using either a rope or string. Ensure that the paths are wide enough for walking.
After that, you can start growing the plants you preferred to form the maze walls. The most important key to take note is to plan a good drainage system for your maze. You could consider digging shallow ditches at the side of the paths or make a slight rise in the center of the paths. Last but not least, after all the effort, you will need to tend to your maze at least once a week. Plants need to be trim from time to time to ensure that they do not overgrow. If your path is made of grass, you will need to mow and pull out weeds from it as often as possible.
