Railroad tie and gravel garden/side yard walkway. I usually don't like gravel and railroad ties but this might be a workable and less expensive option than pavers for backyard walkway to screen porch
Have a deck but no yard? Try this vertical gardening idea---works for herbs, vegetables, and flowers, and creates a lush private deck space too.
