It’s been two weeks since my last video and during that time we’ve been away exploring Switzerland. That doesn’t mean that all was quiet in the home garden though. Over six full days, new pea gravel paths were installed around the raised beds and the walk from the gate to the greenhouse.
In this video we’re going to have a closer look at the paths and also see how everything survived two weeks of us being away. If you’re looking for video showing how to build the paths, I based my design on this video: https://youtu.be/i3W07ssPuDI?t=76
Question for you: first of all let me know what you think of the pea gravel garden paths and then if you have paths installed in your garden. What do you think is the best type?
