Leftovers

We had some cobblestones and stone dust left over from our back patio project. Hmmmmmm.....what to do, what to do........
We dug out a 15 foot section of the asphalt path that connects the sidewalk to our back gate. Eventually, we'll remove all the asphalt and install a nice fence and gate along our property line, but for now, we dug out the asphalt and disposed of it and lined the trench with weed blocking fabric. Then I laid out the curve of the garden bed (curves are good!) After marking out the curve, we laid down the cobblestones, filled the path with stone dust, and back filled the garden bed.
I love the different colors of the cobblestones. And it pleases me that stones from a Holyoke street are now in my garden.
