Made a mess of pebble path: Any suggestions
South Yorkshire, United Kingdom
After having a patio built I suddenly became interested in gardening. I had just long grass in my garden for 12 years with just a few shrubs around the side and an apple tree I planted (now in the wrong place I feel - see my other question). Once planting was finished, I was eager to further improve and having just a rectangular piece of grass at the bottom of the garden(extends to the left hand side too). I decided to create a pebble path. I hadn't a clue what I was doing but got carried away in the excitement of my new hobby. I dug far too deep and temporary edged it with some cheap willow pieces. This didn't look great at all.
My problem is now, all the willow has come off and I'm left with just pebbles and want to get rid of them (and the grass).
Any suggestions of how I can make it look better without paying a fortune for it to be done professionally with paving stones. I am not able to do the hard work myself. Even digging the grass up and pebbling would be too much hard work for me but could get a gardener to do this - just not sure if it would look good?
Also my garden slopes towards the bottom which makes it even harder for me to pebble.
Any ideas appreciated. Would have liked to have put two photos here to show before the path.
