Wood Slice Walkway Inspiration : katyelliott.com Posted on | March 16, 2009 | 22 Comments One last photo from the Portland Flower Show. I found this walkway so interesting decorated with wood slices. Looks like the slices are just laid into sand. Maybe a cool idea for a house in Maine or just any house in the woods. Readers have suggested using larger slices and choosing rot-resistant wood like Black Locust, Douglas Fir, and or Cedar. I was told the garden path is the work of Landmarcs out of Gorham, Maine. Looking for more garden path inspiration, click here for gravel inspiration and here for gray rocks laid in a sidewalk in Salem, Massachusetts. Update: I spotted another wood slice walkway at the 2011 Boston Flower & Garden show, click here to view photos.
