I laid out the stone to measure it for the garden path. It turns out that I have enough stone to take care of the plan. It is not good to walk on. This is actually a job for next spring so I did not yet prepare the job properly, I just wanted to measure before the truck dissolves. The stone dust I laid will have to settle then every stone will have to be removed and levelled to its neighbour. Because it is away from the house, I am not too worried about the drainage. Basically it is just a footpath to the vegetable garden.
This said, I decided that I need a little more stone anyway. I want to join the patio with the path so I need a few more square feet. I guess one or one and a half truckloads will do it. I guess I need about 40 square feet of stone. Fortunately this part is already compressed so I can finish the joining section as I have the patio. Only the path must wait for 2014.
FYI: So far, I have made 13 trips to the quarry for stone at $20/trip.
The stone is coming along nicely and adds just the right touch being natural. I have been struggling with what I want to lay for pathways to make getting to the gardens easier, I may have to break down and have stone laid.
Love Love the stones and more stones. Yeag!
