Title: Re: [cg] marble for paths
Marble is beautiful and doesn’t leach and has be used by cooks for ages as a cold board for pastries and sweets - rather than use in the garden, polish the surface and finish edges and sell as chopping/pastry boards and raise money for your garden – a simple metal drawer pull/handle screwed onto one end will add a professional touch! If you need the marble worked try asking around gem/stone clubs or a local gravestone business who may donate their time and expertise or give some advice. Another great use for slabs of marble is for a base sheet for grinding pigments for paint but I guess not many people have a call for that (even though it is fun and makes beautiful oil paints).

I am thinking about recycling old pieces of marble that the City of Buffalo has disposed of and using it for garden paths. Does anyone know if marble leaches anything and whether this would be a good use for it? Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks. -Diane
