Over the course of the day I'm guessing we had 25 or so volunteers come by and create a mosaic stone or two.
We'll be doing this again on Thursday, August 25, between 4pm & 7pm.
Once all the stones are completed we'll be touching up the alignment in the labyrinth, filling in the areas around the stones with the dirt and laying sod. The small gaps between the stones in the pathways and the larger gaps between the stones in the switchbacks will get filled in with dirt and be seeded with grass so that the visual effect of the gaps will be minimized.
|Getting the stones in place. We had to re-level the ground because the sidewalk ended up higher than we thought it would be.|
|We ended up placing all the stones in the actual labyrinth space and taking up the paper template. It worked better than I thought it would.|
