What to do with a concrete path?
Slow-worm Posts: 1,399
Our small front garden is bisected by a concrete path which nobody uses as it leads to the middle of the house, not the side door, and as we can't have fencing or hedging due to regulations 🙄, it's just a 'nothing' area. The property is rented, and the landlord doesn't mind what we do (within reason) as he knows we look after the property - it's too much work/expense to dig the path out, and I don't really know what to do with it. Any suggestions? (Apart from a fake long barrow!)
The trouble with concrete is also getting rid of it after.
One of the hardy geraniums or parahebes may suit. Erigeron karvinskianus is also a long flowering, very willing plant!
A photo would be good, so that we can get a better idea of the space @Slow-worm
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
Yes I'd considered plants growing either side, which might be one of my only options, cos I'm definitely not up to concrete digging any more, and I really don't like pots/planters because I usually forget to water them. 🙄😄
I'll get a photo Fairygirl, but for now as I'm off to work imminently, it's grass, not bad soil, a gert big tree one side (which I forget the name of, and it probably takes most of the moisture etc), and NE facing, so 6 hours of sun max.
Paint in black or dark grey with a floor/garage paint. Or have it recovered as a resin pathway?
