Re: Today in the garden

Chris, we use seashells between out pavers. Lots and lots of small shells--3/4-inch or less--wash up on the beach. We collect them by the bucketful and use them for paths and such. We also use larger shells, primarily fossilized oyster shells, for mulch in beds that are adjacent to walks, paths, and patios.

between the stones. I may use moss or gravel of a complimentary color to
the stone. I set the walkway below ground level and made slight berms on the
beds to either side. I'm going for a riverbed feeling.
