In this project we are going to show you how to make a pebble path. We are going to use 100x75 h4 treated tanalised posts for the edgings, gap 20 basecourse and a choice of a number of topings (pebbles, bark, shell, chip etc.) A pebble path is easier and cheaper to construct than a paving stone path and irregular and curved shapes offer no problem although weeds can be a nuisance and regular raking can sometimes be necessary. For this project we are assuming the ground is moderate to firm, if not, soft ground will need to be excavated deeper and replaced by basecourse metal. Read at bottom of page for material list and other notes. Step 1: Excavations Dig out the proposed pathway to a depth of 75mm below finished path height (usually existing ground level) and the required path width. Step 2: Putting down the edging. Lay the edge boards (100x75 sawn h4 treared posts) into place so the top of the edge boards are at the required path finished height. Retain them in place with stakes nailed to the outside and trim the stakes off 20mm below the top of the edging board. (see drawing below)
