Change of plans !!

Seven paving stones down

Lath width apart

Time and temperatureThis morning I reworked the paving stones that were in place–and added several more. It was hot and humid–and the mosquitoes were savage. I have citronella candles burning; there is a mosquito plant nearby; marigolds in adjacent planters (but it didn’t stop them).  ~~ Changed my mind!! Frequently my yard becomes a lake during and after a thunder-storm. It makes sense to me that I should have some drainage between the paving stones. They are a lath width apart.

Speaking of thunderstorms, I ordered two (yes, two) rain barrels yesterday. I’ve shopped Lowe’s, Home Depot, Tractor Supply and Walmart for large trash receptacles (for a do-it-myself rain barrel project). I wasn’t happy with the choices. My garden is important to me–I want it to be attractive!! The rain barrels I chose will be a nice addition to my yard (IMHO). Pictures of rain barrels later.
