It's about time!

For weeks the front walkway has been a problem. Rains and vigorous growth had made this more of an obstacle course than a place to walk. The last straw was seeing the FedEx guy stop and walk across the lawn instead of using the pathway -- that's what I had been doing the last few days too!


So with temperatures reasonable (85ºF/29ºC) today, I finally did something about it.

There is actually a walkway there. How about another look?


Maybe another angle will help...


Okay, you can see a bit of stone in that view. Hope you like brushing against bee-laden blooms!

A bit of chopping and pulling and some creative bamboo culm work...


...and there's a walkway!


You can see the bamboo in this photo, holding back the plants on the left (north) side of the walkway:


It's just a couple of canes bound together with a zip tie:


So pretty in front of that artemesia, isn't it?

It's going to be a nice walk to the truck in the morning -- no jumping or contorting or detours!

A sumptuous path. I like the bamboo support. The canes seem drilled. Are they also treated to be more durable against the elements?

Maywyn: Thanks!

Chavliness: They are drilled -- I did not want the horizontal cane to slide down. They are not treated -- I only need them to last for the rest of this year.

It looks more inviting all cleaned up and spiffy but jumping around and cortorting through a jungle can be fun too!
