Handi Mandi TV: Landscape – How To Do A Flagstone Path

We’re doing lots of home renovations these past few weeks, so you get to tag along as we reintroduce beauty and functionality into our front yard with a flagstone path around a beautiful fountain with a wall of emerald cedar shrubs to give us some privacy. More videos to come as we finish the yard and add a second crescent driveway.

Tips:
Go to your local compost center, usually the mulch and wood chips are free.
You can get lots of newspaper if you save your weekly flyers or ask local stores if you can have the sale flyers from the previous week that have expired.
