layout designs for patios | FOR SALE : RECLAIMED BRICK PAVIERS

reclaimed brick from my neighbor's patio when he tore it up. Set up new paths through the beds and sprinkled dry mortar in between. Lush foliage accents the rustic feel.

Maybe a recycled brick patio is the solution to our problem, sure looks good, and is a cheaper more sustainable option than deck or concrete...

Great shake house with hydrangeas, old brick patio, and fence & arbor.

Permeable hardscape Every drop of rain that falls in this thirsty part of the country ought to go in the land. That’s one reason gravel, vs. non-permeable paving, was used throughout the garden.
