Once again, gully washer rains displaced cyprus mulch in the path running along a slope next to Sherry's fish pond. She decided it was time to come up with a more permanent solution for maintaining this section of her path system. To blend with the pond's 'beach' area, different sized pea gravel was put down along with randomly placed field stones left over from the construction of walls delineating a driveway turnaround.
(Finished photo above was taken from a kitchen window.)
Now that materials were determined, removing all the old mulch and experimenting with paver placement was the next step.
Large river rock was placed against a stone shrub border to help hold it in place. These were then covered with smaller gravel in two sizes.
