"How to make a pebble mosaic," Excellent step-by-step instructions from "This Old House." I just need to sort our stones, get more stones, and layout the design. This would be a good project to start in September.
Reuse an old tree to make a log pathway in your garden. Good use of "yard" trees and other wood that can't be milled; works much better in climates without termites. Good drainage under the log rounds will make the path last longer.
