When active feet beat a compacted pathway through your struggling lawn, it's best to bow to the inevitable. Instead of renting aerators, installing awkward fencing or otherwise trying to resurrect the grass in these trails, set flagstone in the grass.
With the hose, wash the edging with a gentle spray, dampening the sand between the bricks without dislodging it. As the sand absorbs water, it will set, acting like grout to lock the bricks in place for years to come.
I love going outside. There's a part of me that's screaming to lay in the grass, on a sunny yet cool day, and just relax. Some photography perhaps. It's so very me. And that's what this board is, a bunch of my inspiration as an artist and how it has created the person that I am today. A person in very proud of.
