How To Turn Reclaimed Timber Into A Sidewalk
Last Updated on May 31, 2018
Some reclaimed timber, hard work and a bit of creativity will give you this beautiful garden path. And by using recycled materials, you’re being kind to your wallet and the environment.
The owner of this project needed a new pathway, but he didn’t want to waste money on concrete. Now concrete is usually permanent but not where he lives. He knows from experience that concrete pathways won’t last long in his area because of expansive soils. Between temperature and humidity changes, the ground moves enough to break up concrete paths.
Good thing he came across some salvaged lumber and, even better, it was free! It’s a bit difficult to believe, but the whole project only cost him about $50.00! Not to mention that he had saved timber that otherwise would’ve ended up in the dump or used as firewood.
