Thanks Bro!!!

things look so much different since you were out last. I'm still amazed how much different the garden looks with colored concrete pathways.

I'll just be glad when its over soon

Josh, I'm sure I speak for others, when I say I look forward to your posts and progress on your project.  Its beginning to look like a Jungle there.  I like the idea that you left a portion unplanted, so that you can take time to dream, and plan that area out.  

I really like the simplicity of the concrete and the retaining walls, especially the color.  It isn't in any competion for attention, and doesn't distract from the plants. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your project.   Cecile

you nailed it on the head when you said that the pathways do not distract from the plants. That was exactly my goal. In a few months the color will lighten up drastically and the earth tones of the color will shine.

 

I'm really going to take my time with the unplanted portion of the garden and plant accordingly :)

 

Thanks for your kind remarks..

Just finished phase 4 on Thursday afternoon. the finish line is soooooo close I can now see it. This project officially has kicked my (expletive) big time.

this last pour has a ton of curves and junctions/intersections with other pathways in the garden making the finish work a nightmare for us.

please enjoy the pictures below.
