Landscaping sounds complex to those of us not gifted with green thumbs – but making paths, patios or decks to define space in a garden or yard can be as simple as slicing sections of wood and infilling the gaps with sand. Sure, you have to cut or buy the log slices but at least you do not need to grow anything in the process. Katy Elliott spotted these at a flower show but they would make a great do-it-yourself garden project. Arranged in groups they can make broader outdoor patio surfaces and define gathering spaces while creating an array makes for an easy stepping-stone style path through existing greenery.
