Stone Walkway Nearly FreeNovember 20th, 2009 in member junk
Not far from where I live, there is a stone and tile company that puts its scraps on a pallet where the public can help themselves. Well, I built an entire walkway through my garden with the pieces. I laid them out and fit them together the best I could. I then took several bags of concrete mix and just tore the bag open on the stones and swept it into the spaces between with a broom. Then I took a water hose and sprayed it until the concrete mix was wet. It was set by the next day. Where I couldn't make an exact fit, I filled in with extra concrete mix, bricks, and other stones. A few of the stone pieces were granite, and therefore, slippery. For these, I flipped them over to the unpolished side or else I globbed cement on the whole piece to form a nonskid surface.
