I am finally installing pathways throughout my garden.
In leaner times I come to the realization that I myself must carry out my own designs, and do my own bidding, if you will. Whaaaaaaah!
I am trying two techniques, I’m sure they are both wrong, But…
With the first technique I will lay out the design on the ground, take off the topsoil, lay down some permeable weed-block fabric and then cover it with 3-6 inches of decomposed granite. Make teenage son tamp down decomposed granite with nifty tamper-downer-thing purchase at hardware store. Dogs can be like cats, they love to lie down right in the middle of whatever you are doing.
I line the edges with rock and voila…pathway.
The second technique will be the same as first minus permeable weed-block fabric. If you really must know, I am trying out the second technique because I ran out of weed-block fabric.
My landscaper (who I can't afford anymore) never uses it. He says that you don’t need to, so we shall see which technique works best.
