Wooden garden path design ideas
Using a few sticks and string is perfect for running a line where you will place wooden slices. All you need is think of the wooden discs’ sizes before you cut them and plan your garden path with similar or different pieces.
Use any logs you have for making wood slices. Cut discs about 2″-4″ thick.
To preserve the wood from rotting, treat the surface of slices with motor oil or Linseed oil. Brush oil on thick and allow it to soak into the wood.
Place discs along your path line evenly or mix wood slices with other landscaping materials, like rocks or wooden boards in different shapes and sizes. You can create additional appeal with wooden cuts in various colors and textures.
Level each disc in place using surrounding dirt. Step on a wood slice and jump in the center to seat it into place. Add small rocks or wood chips around the wood slices, or let the grass grow around them to blend your wooden path with the surroundings.
You can enjoy numerous creative and attractive path designs while recycling wood and improving your yard landscaping. Beautiful and easy-to-make walkways made from natural materials create gorgeous accents that amplify modern garden designs and give a unique, creative, and Green look to eco-friendly yard landscaping.
