….is a wonderful material. It is a by-product that would have to be disposed of. We are lucky on our allotment site to know a tree surgeon who is only too pleased to give us a truckload or two to improve our paths. Yesterday was the day, it was our second load and there will be another one to come today. We are even told what tree it was that we have on our paths – on Monday it was ash and yesterday we had lime.
It makes life so much easier, there is no mud on the paths and it keeps down all the weeds. Of course it needs repairs as we walk on it but we decided we can manage to do it every two years. The good thing is we can ask at any time in between if we need an emergency repair.
