Old Broken Roof Tiles make great Garden Pathways

broken tile pathwayTwo weeks of subzero weather has finally given way to warmer sunnier weather. Back to clearing some of the mess at the back of the house, including piles of leftover old broken roof tiles. We’d already decided to use them up as ground cover around and between the raised beds in the vegetable garden. In the images, the ‘path’ between the two existing raised beds was prepared by raking level, a porous plastic anti-weed membrane cut and laid down, and some leftover castine (fine clay/chipped stone aggregate) added and tamped flat before adding the broken tile, smashed with a club hammer into small, nicely sized pieces, flat enough to walk on.broken tile texture
