Ted always uses the garden hose to lay out curves.:):) We built the porch/deck three years ago..we never finished the walkway . So here's the skinny walkway and steps up to the deck..sad,sad,sad.
Once we have the curve we want, Ted sprays the ground with orange marker spray, it holds up in rain.
We had those same pathway steps all the way to the shop. So now we will have a 3 foot wide walkway..hooray. It's been like walking a tightrope on that skinny path. We are saving the nice grassy sod for some fill-ins around the yard. As we were laying out the walkway, I remark about how nothing seems to line up . Ted says the house was built here 50 years ago and never aligned with the road. So if any of you know the meaning of square, plumb, and level.....I am telling you this place is none of those.LOL Well at least we do it right. :):)
