Repairing patio furniture


My Dad, who likes to do everything himself, is repairing his patio furniture. He has taken off the vinyl basket weave strapping, sanded down the old paint, and repainted. He has ordered the new vinyl strapping. He knows the pattern of the basket weave, and he wanted me to see if anyone has a good suggestion as to how to keep the weave tight. Are there any hints for him to use during the re-weaving which will enable the strapping to stay nice and tight?

I have found in the past that if I use a hair blow dryer to warm the vinyl as I weave and attach, it will shrink back to a snug fit.

Walkways

I want to install a brick walk way, what are the steps that I should take to do this? I know the area that I want to put it in but I don't know what goes first, second or third.

First remove the sod.
Dig down a little into the dirt... and then fill the area with sand. The depth to which you dig down is determined by the final height you want minus 3 inches of sand and the thickness of your brick.
Third, lay down a fine mesh plant barrier. I forget the name of this stuff, but they sell it for under walkways like this or under mulch to keep the grass from growing up through. Then put down your brick. You will need to consider how you will hold the brick in place. You can use pressure treated wood landscaping ties... or cement in the edge row of bricks or a cement curb/border. Or you c...
