This project can be done in a weekend depending on your enthusiasm & planning, its always nice to have help too. During viewing of pictures, if there is a yellow box on it, just mouse over it to view info about it.
I had came up with this idea by just spotting a sale on pavers at the local mega store. I believe I paid 25 cents a piece for them.
Whenever you do a project be resourceful! look around the hidden spots of your garage & yard or neighborhood mega trash day or start collecting used bricks from demolition sites or wherever (just get permission first). Try and come up with ideas to incorporate the findings into your project. Be creative, use your imagination if you don't have any ideas then brainstorm with someone else for help or inspiration. Also look thru magazines, watch DIY shows or just sit and contemplate on what you would like to see.
I had used railroad ties that I had been saving which made a nice and sturdy border for my project.
I also have some old railroad track anchor plates and spikes that I intend to install on top of the RR ties to connect them all together for added strength, support and appeal. (I am an antique junkie!)
Step 1: Getting started.
For this tutorial I will be installing the pathway down the center of my wife's garden.
