Video: Build Your Own Walkway

I recently went out on a job with local landscaping contractor Dustin Carrier from Carrier Lawn and Landscape, based here in Lewiston, Maine. Dustin showed me, step-by-step, how to easily build an attractive, functional sidewalk, or even a patio – the basic steps are all the same – using very simple materials. I now feel confident enough to do this job myself. Hopefully, after watching this informational video series, you will too!

Thanks, Emily! Don’t forget to come back next week to see the rest.

Wow – finally a great video that had exactly the info I needed! I watched your video on how to set the surface for a brick walkway. Very good information and well-explained. I was just about to re-do my front sidewalk to my front door and didn’t know to dig such a deep canal or rent the ground flattener. Thanks again. ~ Emily in Colorado

Well done. I still think I would call Dustin to help me install my pavers!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
