So Ed and I are thinking we need gravel paths. Thing is, Ed wants to buy gravel, but I don't want to have to buy rock when we have so much laying around. So I've decided to try to build paths out of what we have on hand. Since I have started challenge to rid the garden of slugs--this means that I will need to move a lot of rock from the gardens anyway.
|I started by using my new mini tiller to loosen up the soil for a pathway.|
|Then dug some slightly deeper areas, where I placed the largest of the rocks I could find. |
|On top of the large rocks I will place medium size rocks, and then rocks that get progressively smaller. |
|Guy and the dogs are helping and playing with a toy that Aunt Grace got for Guy. Sorry, Grace, the dogs popped it but they are still having lots of fun!|
Anyway, the path is pretty rickety, but I am hoping that the clay soil will help stabilize them over time. I'm hoping it will eventually look like a dry river bed (which I'm pretty sure this property was originally anyway). Will keep you posted on whether this was a good idea or not.
