My sister had a narrow walk way and the soil around it was eroding away at the far end. So I used the dirt in the back yard to fill in the low areas around the sidewalk. The soil is very
sandy so I didn't have to buy sand to level the stones she already had in her backyard. I used a level to make sure the sidewalk was level and the stones next to it level. We bought a 100 pounds of red decomposed grant for $15 and had some left over for another project. I placed her red concrete scalped edging over to the side and around the back to keep the dirt from washing down the yard. I also used an old concrete fountain that I broke up and placed in the ground to keep the low side from shifting or washing down a slopped yard. I finished with rocks around the bushes and added mulch to provide ground cover and nourishment for the bushes. All the rocks came from the desert. Now the walk way looks like the red rocks of Sedona, AZ.
