Found some of this flagstone on the property and the rest I found on Craigslist (took a little while to accumulate what I needed) but the price was right.
Fast forward a couple years (the grass grew in just like I hoped it would).
Let’s get this party started…
Layout where your path is going to be.
Rip and prep the dirt for rock placement. I used a rototiller to make this job a little easier.
When the earth gets dry around here, it’s like rock. Need to unleash the pick axe to manage this.
A little moisture and a rototiller makes all the difference.
Get muddy and start moving all the rocks in to place. I left just a slight lip on the sides of the path for the sod to but up against the rocks.
Love it when it all starts to come together.
Why pay for a gym membership?
Bunch of black dirt all ready for sod… and in time it’ll fill in with grass (between the rocks on the path).
