Is this pathway compacted dirt or some other material?

Love the color and the texture!

    Hi Vicki, that garden is in Southern California where the soil is clay to begin with. The necesary irrigation falls only on the plantings to conserve water so the native earth needed only a layer of grit added each year to achieve this wonderfully natural pathway. You could achieve a similar look in a wetter climate by removing the layer of topsoil and adding it to the adjacent planting bed. Layer some thick gravel toped with grit to finish the look. I hope this answers your question. You may always contact me via my website above.

    Thank you so much, Kari. I'm getting ready to make some paths in my garden so I just might try your suggestion.

    Love the feeling of this pathway. It looks like you've put in a line of metal edging between the path and garden. What type of edging was used and how deep does it go? Thank you.
