One last photo from the Portland Flower Show. I found this walkway so interesting decorated with wood slices. Looks like the slices are just laid into sand. Maybe a cool idea for a house in Maine or just any house in the woods. You might want to use more sand. The slices shown here did look a little wobbly.
Readers have suggested using larger slices and choosing rot-resistant wood like Black Locust, Douglas Fir, and or Cedar. By using thicker slices the wood could sink into the sand creating a more stable ground.
Update: I spotted another wood slice walkway at the 2011 Boston Flower & Garden show, click here to view photos. Am I sensing a trend?
