Use old Wood Planks to create a fun pathway but make sure it is not 'ARSENIC' treated wood. My pathway looked pretty but it was a waste of an effort, particularly since I found out that the wood is actually banned from use in backyards and even seeps into soil and effects the the food and flowers we bring into our lives.

If they die we die - help them in your garden by planting open single head flowers, planting the same plants in clusters rather than peppered around the garden, plant for a succession of flowers throughout the year. Some good varieties include snowdrops, aconites, blackthorn, mahonia, hollyhocks, foxgloves, forget me nots, borage, lavender, wild thyme, buddleia and let the clover grow in your lawn. If you have space for a wild patch they also love dandelion and nettle.
