Garden path made of broken glass

I kept finding so much broken glass that I decided to put it through my rock tumbler to use for my garden path. I'm going to add rope lights under the glass. The pics are of about 10 gallons. I'm going to need a lot more! 80% is found glass and the other 20% is flea market/thrift shop glass. The photos show the path dry and wet.

I love it! I've long contended that the best method of recycling is to reuse the product or material.

It reminds me of beach glass. One of my older brothers used to always pick up beach glass, and fill old mason jars with in. He did it when he lived in New Hampshire (about 1980-2010). He's in Florida now, and I'm not sure if he walks the beach anymore.

I wish I had those jars. He didn't pay on his NH storage units, and they got auctioned off.

I'm FL and haven't found any glass on the beaches yet. I'm always looking for fossil shark teeth. Total bummer about the storage unit - that glass would be awesome!
