1. Create a Charming Gravel Pathway

Materials needed: Gravel, landscape fabric, edging materials

Step-by-Step Guide:

  • Measure and mark your pathway area, considering the flow of your garden.

  • Place the frame in a sunny spot, ensuring it's level and stable.
  • Fill it with organic topsoil, rich in nutrients for plant growth.
  • Plant your favorite flowers, herbs, or vegetables, considering their sunlight needs.

Tip: Raised beds offer better drainage and are easier on your back. They also allow for more control over soil quality and composition.


3. Accentuate with Mulch

Materials needed: Mulch

Step-by-Step Guide:
