Most people who are fond of garden stonework like to make their paths of machine cut sandstone blocks, or natural flakes of rock collected in the bush.
Both are readily obtain- able in Sydney, where sand- stone is the rock founda- tion of most suburban gardens.
But anyone who likes dabbling in concrete will reap satisfaction and bene- fit from a path made of
concrete flagstones fash- ioned on the spot.
As shown in the sketch below the concrele is poured straight into moulds of sheet metal laid out on the ground.
The metal bands will bend into any shape you fancy and can be held in position until the concrete sets by punching holes in the ends and wiling them together.
Best results are obtained by using bands 2in to 3in wide and some 6ft long They should be bent so that no two shapes are just alike.
