Walking the walk

I was rather sad Saturday morning. I knew I couldn't and didn't want to spend the day with my face in a tear soaked pillow. I had to find a project. Be productive.

I'm obsessed with keeping a clear path around my beds and through the yard. But I can't always get my landscape team (husband and oldest son) to be as proactive as I would like them to be. And there is only so much I can do with my weed-eater. So I have been researching (Pinteresting) all kind of garden walk ideas.

I finally found one that I liked and still looked very natural. Ben doesn't want full on sidewalks throughout the yard. And he rolls his eyes every time I mention pavers.

So on Saturday after a good cry I jumped up and started cutting some leftover wood.  I took a large cardboard box from the recycling at work to lay down over the knee high grass. Then fit the wood planks in snugly between the raised beds.


The plan is to fill in between the boards with river rock. There is a place in town by the river that sells it for $7 a ton. Awesome landscaping deal there.  Once the rock is down I'm going to sprinkle in concrete then spray it with water to set everything.

I can't wait till it's all finished!

That is a really good idea. And it doesn't look too hard.
