Dig out the egg boxes

Standard

I had toyed with the idea of buying in real paving slabs but then decided they’d weigh much too much and I’m trying to keep this overgrown item as lightweight as possible.

Besides, being cheapskate, egg box lids for the paving along the whole of the very, very long side path to this house would certainly do the job. Lots of paving needed and egg boxes are readily available round here and don’t weigh anything much worth mentioning.  So what’s not to like?

Around 90 – 100 bits of egg box needed and done in three batches.  Didn’t seem to take as long as anticipated, except for the drying process.

Now for the fun and even messier bit

All firmly stuck down but instead of grouting I’m greening the spaces in between. Glue lightly shimmied into the larger crevices and various bits of lichen or thread plants (from railway modelling sites) and grass dust of mixed colours encouraged to take up residence on the glue.

Side entrance and coal bunker on the raised area. No weed killer used around here

The ‘run’ to the gate – great playing area — must dig out the toys etc

Will have another look at it all either tomorrow or soon after and see if it might need a little more infill
