Further to 96/366: planning a project, I am pleased to announce that it was a successful mission. A few sessions were required to complete the task, as I had to dig out where the pavers would go, try to make them fairly level and square, plant the mondo grass and add the river pebbles. Ah, the satisfaction that comes with a completed project is sublime!
Rather than rushing headlong into a project, it is generally a good idea to have the seed of an idea, let it germinate and grow and evolve into something workable.
In this case I am going to use some new square grey pavers, in addition to some offcuts of pavers I already had – a mixture of old and new. Then I will add some river pebbles, again helping protect the path from an overflow of mulch.
With my love for river pebbles reaching fever pitch, I am gradually replacing some areas of mulch with (obviously) longer-lasting stones.
I have planted some dwarf mondo grass along the way as a little feature clump at intervals to add some easy-care greenery. The tag promises they won’t grow too large, but only time will tell. Meanwhile, there is room for some growth.
