Building our Home Depot Zipper Paver Pathway
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Home Depot. Thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. I am grateful to Home Depot for this opportunity to work with them and receive the materials to enhance and improve our backyard.
The Zipper Pathway has been planned, and the materials have been purchased with the help of the instructions downloaded from the Home Depot Garden Club website. So now we start the project. I can’t wait to see the finished project but we have a lot of #Digin ahead of us. The first step was to layout the pathway with stakes and string.
The completed path will have a gentle curve as it winds between the cellar entry and the back deck.
Now that we have the path laid out, the not so fun part starts…dig, baby,dig!!!!!!!!
And dig some more! In fact we are digging down to a depth of 5 inches. We want the end result to be have the path flush with the lawn so that we can mow over it if the clover gets to tall. So 6 inches will give us room for 2 inches of paver base, 1 inch of leveling sand and then the 2 inch thick paver stones.
I believe these guys are sidewalk superintendents! They were very excited because in the process we unearthed some very tasty worms.
What a day, we’re dead tired so tomorrow we will finish the landscaping. Be sure to come back and see how cool it is going to look. Our Home Depot Zipper Pathway has really enhanced our backyard and made for a very dramatic makeover. Have you noticed that ugly green pipe sticking out of the ground? That is the cap to our well. We came up with a very cool way to disguise it. Want to see the finished path – click on this link.
