Garden path with their hands, made ​​using a mold for casting stones garden.


Make it easy. independently. Step by step

March 16, 1:40 PM [GMT -5]

I purchased forms for making concrete "flagstones" several years ago. I was planing to lay landscape cloth on the intended path, then mixing only enough concrete for one form at a time and pouring it. I was thinking that the concrete would seek it's own level on the top so I would not have to do all of that leveling on the bottom.

The grade is gradual but definitely not flat.. If that is a bad idea, then do I need to pour the form on level ground? That will mean picking up each "flagstone" and resetting it correctly.

I have an erosion problem with flash flooding so I need the weight. I would like to fill the gaps with crushed rock., mulch would wash away. Crushed rock might end up in the ditches, but the bad flash floods only happen every 2 - 3 years or so.

Any thoughts?
