Life is strange, it seems I could not get any home projects done because I was working and making money, now that I have been laid off, I have the time, but am unwilling to put out a lot of money. Well this walkway has been an issue since we moved in. Anyone have any ideas about how to make this somewhat presentable? Would prefer a way to either refurbish, or cover the railroad ties, as for the tree that’s growing through the brick... ahh no clue. Thanks for your help!
