Up the garden path

When we bought our house there were many aspects of the house and garden that we loved but there was one aspect we just couldn’t understand.  The path up to the garage from the back door had been built on a slope.  Not as in going from low to high but being high on one side and low on the other so your feet were never on the same level as you walked up the path.  We have lived with it for about three years but now is the time to fix it.

We have pulled up all the pavers and moved the turf.

Our new path will be much wider and will be made with sleepers and crushed granite.

From the garage.

Now comes the tricky part as we need to get the levels right.  There will be six steps in the path and hopefully each step will be level.

I will do a post when we finish it!
