- Dig out ~3-4" dirt for path
- Tamp down dirt
- add ~2" deep 1/4" minus gravel (this is partially because we already have solid soil that drains well)
- tamp down
- lay quartzite
- lift stone and add ~1/2" sand
- put stone so level in sand
- fill joints with gravel
- wet down gravel
We decided to tackle a walkway not only because it is not exactly attractive to have a purely soil style walkway and yard, but you would not believe the amount of dirt that was in our house by the end of the week.
In addition, Barrett, our awesome tile guy spent a large part of his weekend over at our house installing our beautiful fireplace tile...more pictures to come soon as it should be all finished this week sometime. You can still see some of the dust created on the andirons from when Barrett jack hammered out the old hearth-it took me two rounds of dusting to get everything up. Now I just need to find some decor for the mantle.
