Garden Renovation: Days 19-20 – Gravel & Laying Pavers
Posted by Rebecca
It doesn’t look like there is going to be much action in the garden today since they are still waiting for a few spots to dry out after the rain on Saturday. It would be nice to get it done before there’s another chance of rain later this week!
They finished putting the gravel down Thursday afternoon of last week. You can kind of see the beds taking shape with the gravel in place! This looks like there isn’t much planting space, but the gravel actually extends underneath the edges of the raised beds to provide a solid base and also help extend the drain field a little bid. The gravel will be covered with mulch to make it walkable.
They finished this section of the brick by Thursday afternoon, as well as the plastic railroad ties that are edging the garden area along the lattice. There is still a little more of the brick to be laid on the far end of the garden where it was too wet last week. They will also be laying permeable pavers in the classroom area when it is dry enough to work under there.
