I'm in need of an inexpensive pathway material. I want to put in a garden path around 2 sides of my house connecting one deck with the other but I simply can't afford to go out and buy the number of patio pavers/bricks I would need to do it and certainly can't afford that much cement. The only thing I can come up with is using 2 or 3-inch slabs of log cut from a fallen tree (of course, right now I don't have any downed trees in our woods). I was also thinking about using sections of slab wood cut in the same lengths and placed with the rounded side down exposing the wood side. But I wonder if anyone else has any other ideas for inexpensive (or free) items that I can use as pathway pavers. I'd be grateful if anyone can share their ideas with me.
