The gravel we ordered was delivered this week, and Iain started working on the paths. By the end of the weekend they were really taking shape, and his arms were ready to fall off. You see, the method involved is: a) shovel fill into trailer or wheelbarrow; b) distribute onto pathway; c) tamp down with 10x10 stamper; d) spray with water to settle gravel; e) lay garden fabric; f) repeat above with crushed stone. Hard work, but the paths are so smooth - a big improvement!
|This picture doesn't do the path justice. I'll get more next weekend.|
|If you look closely, you'll see the cabinet has a rustic look that wasn't expected: the doors wouldn't close after I painted them, so I had to sand them down quite a bit. I should have expected that!|
