Hello,

In the summer of 2011, I decided to build garden paths or trails in the garden.

Objectives: To give a natural look to the trails and allow better circulation on the yard.

Cost: gravel and stone dust = 300$

Love the idea, a natural looking path is so much more relaxing than hardscaped. Saw a similar real beauty where the top was small river rocks tamped into (looked like) clay soil. Unfortunately, I just can't see myself digging down 8 inches my overly rocky New England soil. I guess I'll just have to enjoy yours in the mean time.

I really like your path ideas, My son does alot of work on his front yard & he needs to do a walkway so I will pass this on to him, great work !
