Sliced Wood Into a Beautiful Garden Wood Path 2 • Do-It-Yourself Ideas

Katy Elliott spotted these at a flower show but they would make a great do-it-yourself garden project. Arranged in groups they can make broader outdoor patio surfaces and define gathering spaces while creating an array makes for an easy stepping-stone style path through existing greenery.

LOVE it, but it probably wouldn’t be worth the effort in Fla. Termites, etc. would turn it into sawdust in no time.

Judea Nieuwenhuijzen we have one like this made of oak, it lasts for ~ 7years now. Every year we remove grass and kind of mushrooms growing between little blocks, and last year we filled spaces between blocks with sand.

A power miter saw or other power saws would do the trick. Perhaps you have a neighbor or someone in your circle of friends or even a facebook plea my come up with someone to help cut them. I live in Oregon and untreated wood rots fast here. I am intrigued with this idea and I would try using a sealer such as Thompson Water Sealer, which is clear, or a semi-transparent deck stain. The stain runs about $30-40 a gallon, Thompson s is cheaper. Your local hardware store could help you and should be willing to inform you about… Read more »
