As we were out + about last week,
I asked G.O. if we could stop at a huge place that sells hardscaping materials.
Is that a word? Hardscaping?
Anyway, I just hope that we can buy some of said-same this year,
as our back yard is currently a muddy mess!
My plans include this:
Rotten granite, also known (on HGTV) as decomposed granite.
It’s very French, isn’t it?
Crunch crunch underfoot!
My plans include enlarging our driveway + stuff.
Here is a huge pile of it, with our beloved Dory:
Rotten granite will cost us $89 per truck load.
That doesn’t sound so bad, does it?
I also found the bricks that I must have for our front sidewalk:
Looks like genuine old brick like no other product I’ve seen!
Here we have a sample walkway, laid in a basket weave design:
Nice but nope. I prefer, instead, the herringbone pattern:
Now we’re getting warmer!
And finally, perfection!
Herring bone pattern with soldier course bricks for the border
+ Chloe the Dachshund:
I’ve waited so long + so patiently
for all this outdoor happiness at the Dutch colonial.
Guess we’ll all stay tuned!
