Champagne Hellstrip Walkways
I’ve feel like I’ve mostly been posting about plants lately, not as much about stone. Spring, lots of blooms happening. Yesterday I did a checkup on a planting where we did four small stone walkways in the hellstrips. The stone is 2″ thick tumbled champagne–nice bit of branding there…It’s the champagne of stones!–set in gold path fines, aka decomposed granite. Champagne stone is a good match for the concrete of the sidewalk; it’s nicer than the concrete, but doesn’t contrast too strongly. The pattern is hopscotch; the goal is to avoid long straight lines in the joints and along the sides. We use weed cloth underneath the stone, but no bender board when we do hopscotch pattern.
