Since the day we moved into our home, I haven’t really loved our curb appeal. The walk runs right up against the front window and the pavers have sunken into the ground.
It just looks like yuck.
but there were always so many other things to do, it kind of took a spot on the back burner. This last spring, I thought I would play with how I liked it with a curved walk,
So I got my shovel out and started digging. I always figure it never costs anything to dig and it’s great exercise.
I liked it! Now it was just waiting for the right time to do a full blown walk of some kind. My mom called me a few weeks ago and told me her neighbor had a ton flagstone she wanted to get rid of.
So I loaded up our mini-van as much as I could without blowing out the shocks, many trips later and a very sore back I started digging again, and digging and digging!
One of my neighbors gave me an odd look as he drove by.He kind of did that slooooow roll by thing while he gaped.I think he thought bodies were going in there.
You think he would be used to the craziness around here by now. #myneighborsthinkI’mtheweirdneighborwhogoesthroughtheirgarbage
I have to admit, I have no clue what I am doing.I’ve never laid a flagstone path before. I watched a couple of what I like to call “The school of Youtube” videos, like I did for tiling at the Oak House,but other than that.
I am kind of winging it. I am a winging it kind of gal.
It’s been amazing out working in the beautiful weather we have been having!Someone had a leaf fire going today and the smell just made it feel like fall.
Once the path is done, that entire area will be a planting bed and I am going to line the entire thing with Hosta’s and flowers. And, I want to put a bench in front so I can drink a beer,watch the cars go by,and nurse my broken back.:)
I’ll be so excited when it’s done though, and I just had to share my progress with you.
