Path building We decided that we need to make a path so that we can access the Holly hedge along the side of the garden. We had enough bricks to make a path across from the drive to the hedge. The mulch had killed off the grass so it was easy to strip it off and remove the mulch at the same time. I replaced some of the mulch as a foundation layer for when I put decorative bark down. The section of garden between the Drive side bed and the Holly hedge. Again the mulch had killed off the 'grass' underneath so it was easy to strip away the dead stuff. Our neighbour gave us a large number of bricks to make one side of the path. Putting them down in a straight line was fairly easy except where there were big tree roots from the hedge and the Rowan in the Drive side bed. There were not enough bricks to go all the way to the shrub at the end. We will have to buy some to complete the path another time. I used logs to make the right hand side of the path. The decorative bark finishes it off nicely.
