Using Natural Stone

Ever think of adding natural stone to your landscape, whether a walkway, patio, firepit or retaining wall. The use of natural stone will add character to any landscape, below is a natural stone walkway we put in on this property.

This project consisted of removing the old walkway, which went to an old entry off to the left and creating a new walkway to the new entryway. As we made the cut for the walkway, removing all roots, rocks and other barriers, we tamped the existing base and added a fabric barrier prior to putting in the new base. We then added a layer of stone dust, laid out our stones, setting and leveling them as we went and then swept in stone dust into the joints to form a locking joint.

Tips:

Be sure to compact the materials

Apply a fabric material between base materials (original base and main base.)

Do a dry run with your stone layout

Be sure to wet the project each time after sweeping the stone dust into the joints.

Happy Spring!!

Durgin’s Lawn & Landscape would like to wish everyone a great spring season. A time to get our seed started kits going and plan those landscape projects, as we begin to see signs of grass and flowerbeds.

Here in Norway Maine, we still have a good amount of snow to melt, but slowly things are melting. So in the meantime we’ve been working on our marketing, as well as our lawn care equipment.

Are you looking forward to getting out there and digging in the dirt, planting new flowers, spending time with family as you enjoy your your new outdoor living center? There’s nothing like relaxing around a fire pit under the stars, roasting marshmallows and just letting the cares of the week wash away, even if just for a little while.

Hopefully, you’ve been planning your spring projects or at least tossing around a few ideas for the new season on what your going to plant, whether a perennial garden or a vegetable garden and we wish you a great season.

Also, don’t forget to service your lawn mower, so when the grass starts growing, it’ll be ready to handle your lawn care needs this season.

Happy Planting!!
