I have a small crew of family members coming over this weekend to assemble a large swing set. I cannot come up with a cost effective base to set the thing on! I'm wondering if you can help?!?! Here's the project scope:
-something free or very cheap
-something that will be weed proof
-something that I can mow over/around (so ground level??)
-something somewhat maintenance free
Tools at my disposal
-Yanmar diesel tractor with blade, rototiller, and 900lb roller
-shovels, picks, axe, chainsaw, garage full of the usual tools
-endless supply of trees - we live in the middle of the woods
-small crew of guys
The ground is currently flat. 90% sun throughout the day. Located in NW PA.
My thoughts were to till the entire area plus some; remove a few inches of dirt/sod; line with landscape fabric; build unit; back fill with free wood chips from the municipality. What do I do about a border I can mow around and over eliminating the need to weed trim?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
