Garden Path Project

We love our patio so much that we decided to extend it by constructing our very own garden path between the beds on the side of our yard – between the house and privacy fence. Here’s the before picture.

And here it is once we got rid of the grass and weeds.

We wanted to extend the beds a bit on both sides, so we removed the brick and replaced it with stone for he borders. We are still in the process of cleaning up and finishing the grout work though.

All I can say is it was hot out there! But we repaired a few sprinkler heads, so the plants will have a much needed water supply throughout the hot summer months ahead!

I’ll post a picture of the finished project soon! I even have a couple of birdhouses on poles, and we’re planning on adding some landscape lighting soon!

    The transformation is looking pretty sweet. Love the stone work. On the far right…is that a lilac? Matti
