My BOARDWALK








I am sorry I forgot to take a before picture, the walkway was small dark red stone with 18" round red pavers. The stones were sooo annoying, always being kicked up and on the grass. It was difficult for mowing and just was not very attractive. Larry always wanted to change it but other things needed to be done. Our middle son Larry who lives in Virginia came up Memorial Day Weekend with his son Anthony and his friend Shaun to do a new walk. My daughter Patricia shoveled and picked up the gravel, about 50 feet, and redistributed it in the back yard along with the round pavers. She really worked hard and did a great job so when the boys came it was ready for them. 4 trips to Home Depot for the wood, 2 and 1/2 days work and I have my very own "Boardwalk" Brandon was a big help and is learning from his Uncle as he did from his Dad. It makes such a big difference, brightens up the whole entrance, so neat and trim. Thanks Guys you did an awesome job and I really appreciate it.
