The nice thing about living in Texas is that we're able to spend time working outdoors during every season. The 80 degree temperatures that pop up every few weeks in December are actually perfect for yard work... if only the daylight lasted longer, creating this decomposed granite* path wouldn't have taken so long!
*I've been calling it "crushed granite" but later found out that there is a difference between crushed and decomposed- the decomposed stuff is in finer pieces (I think).
A quick rundown on how we got here:
1. Nate dug trenches and installed the recycled edging along our path site.
2. We dug (f-o-r-e-v-e-r)/ shoveled/ dumped the ground within the path area until the depth reached at least four inches.
3. I put down and stapled weed blocking fabric along the path route (I made sure to leave the fabric loose to account for the pressure of people walking along the path).
