Here's the trailer loaded with sand. This is fine sand for the top of the walk and landing. We actually re-used the sand from under the patio bricks we dug up to re-use. Talk about recycling. :):) Folks, I have told you, we have handled these bricks till we know them personally. This is the 3rd project that these very bricks have been used for. They are staying here till the ends of time now. I do not ever want to handle these bricks again. I am 15 years older than when I first bought them.
This is the used sand. Put it down first, wet it , tamp it, scrape it with the measuring board., wet it again, tamp it again. Here's Ted mowing, he threw all the bricks laying out into the dugout walkway, so he could mow.
Finally the walk is done....and so am I. Ted and I took our time doing this walk, but it still was a chore. Team effort helps us get things done around here. This walk isn't perfect, but it's a lot nicer walk than what was there. I don't know why we just now got around to fixing this walk. I think we see things day in and day out and just get used to it. Good or bad.
I'll show a couple more projects that just happened as this work was going on. Like what do you do with all the dirt you dug out to make a walk. I made two new flowerbeds, filled in so low spots in the yard. Those now need to be seeded for grass. We will be having a raised garden area next year. Enjoy your day. I am home , not at the farmer's market.....cause I now have the head cold Ted was sporting around last weekend. xo
