Granite Scrap Patio and PathMay 31st, 2009 in member junk
Thanks Gretchen for your post "Granite Path". I loved the idea so much my Sister and I went dumpster diving at the store where she got her granite counter tops. I tried to pick out a lot of different colors and sizes. The patio is 7'x 14'. It took a lot more granite then I thought it would. The hardest part was the removal of rock that we had in our landscaping. My sons and my husband helped me with that part of the job. I loved it when I actually got to start laying out the granite pieces. It reminded me of piecework quilting, just heavier patches. It's like a puzzle I just kept putting pieces in and moving them around. My hands ached for days. When I swept the sand mix in I was amazed at how beautiful it was. I put perennials in front of the patio some day they will be bigger and fill in.
