We walk through our front yard to the bottom drive. I've been wanting, for years, to install a path. Well, I finally bought hardware cloth and some of the prefab stepping stones. I will put in good soil and put plants that can tolerate full sun (sedum) in the cracks between the stones. I will lay weed block, then the hardware cloth, then the soild, stones, more soil to fill in then the sedum. The stones are the dark grey so they will match my house color. I think it will look really pretty. I'll start at the white lattice arbor (with a very agressive climbing yellow rose in full bloom), and work my way down the yard, little by little. I'll have little steps here and there to the fruit trees, but no obvious path to them. I'm getting so excited just thinking about it!!!
