This install of my CORE Path Foundations was easy, and I able to complete it on my own. I used a sod cutter from Home Depot to create the base for my 36 " wide path. I removed the sod and raked to remove any lumps. Then I laid down the core material and linked them together (this took less than half an hour). At the corners I cut the system with tinships. Then I got the gravel from Black Gold for only $20 and started at the beginning of the path to dump small amounts of the gravel levelling out as I went. Once it was all done I racked some of the gravel to cover the edge right up to the grass.
I was amazed at how easy it was to do and the whole system seems very forgiving in that the surface preperation is minimal.
