2020 Breeze

Gray and Red breeze is used in walkways.   Eventually this will replace much of the pea gravel used in the large circular walkway that rings the backyard.  The pea gravel will then become the mulch for the prairie.

RED: 1/3 yard was purchased and used in the south area of the new walkways – covered 10′ x 3′ x 4″

2020 1 yard delivery = $70+40 = $110
