We're working on deciding what type of material to build our sidewalks out of. There are basically 2 camps. The hard surface folks prefer concrete (colored or pavers) because it works better for wheeled things, its durability, and its performance in snow and mud season. The loose surface folks prefer crusher fines (like fine gravel) because it's much less environmentally damaging, blends in better with our rural landscape, and costs about one-third less. We will have a very rural community in the mountain southwest where we get lots of sunshine, but also plenty of snow and some rain. By very rural I mean that the cluster will still be fairly small (24 homes on about 3-4 acres), but we will have about 250 acres of open space (forest and pasture). What has been your expereince with your sidewalks? What have you done that you think worked well? What do you wish you would have done differently? -- Mac Thomson San Juan Cohousing ganesh [at] rmi.net Durango, Colorado Web Site: http://www.sanjuancohousing.com "It takes two to speak the truth -- one to speak and another to hear." - Henry David Thoreau
