Create a Checkerboard Garden This simple design of paving stones and plants can be used to create a dramatic courtyard or a fun space for children. Plant it up with turfgrass, chamomile or low-growing herbs, such as thyme.
Well, it wasn't easy with a 3 year old around. But free tires from garages more then willing to give them away. A few cans of spray paint from Walmart (paint after assembled to save on paint) and Cypress mulch (packs really nicely) from Home Depot. Adding in a Little Tikes sliding board that he is out growing and you have a home made fun, play area for a very active little boy!!
