We should have recognized immediately that we would want a demarcation line around the sandy beach area because there are bricks edging the flower beds.
Both of us love bricks, unfortunately, we were out of bricks. While it was common to get on a CraigsList ad in Vancouver and find bricks for free, there is no CraigsList here on the Peninsula. In fact, all landscaping products must be transported here, making them quite expensive.
Right about that time, we got a call from the kids in Vancouver. They thought they would come for a visit, was there anything that they could bring to us. Now was the time to have a conversation regarding the changes that would be happening and any landscape materials they might want to be rid of.
As it turned out, the front yard in Vancouver had a lava rock border, and that was an area they intended to change, so they brought those rocks down when they came to visit. Those lava rocks were just what we were looking for! They form a perfect demarcation between the sand and the pea gravel and give a nice contrast to the brick borders.
And we had just enough...............
Stay tuned for part 4.
