    I love how versatile these pavers are for landscaping. The tiered walls and steps make that simple house really stand out. It would be cool to do something like this in my front yard. Our patio has seen better days, so this would be a nice replacement!

    Thanks for your ideas. I have wanted to add a water feature to my yard for a while. I just don’t want to have it in the ground and run the risk of anyone falling in. So, I love the idea of using pavers to make a raised bed where I could put the water feature.

  • I love that paver mosaic! We’re looking for a way to spruce up our curb appeal and considering our driveway needs to be redone anyway, I’d love to have one that looks like the picture. I especially love how the paving stones themselves don’t look perfectly straight in the pattern. That was such a great idea and I haven’t seen anything like it in our neighborhood, so thank you for the inspiration!

    My mom went through this crazy paver phase when I was young, so we now have nice paths around our small farm. Though I love the paths, she stole a lot of sand out of my sandbox! I thought the outdoor fireplace was a great idea that I had never thought of before. I’ll have to show this to her because she loves this kind of stuff. Thanks!

    Beautiful work! Didn’t know you can do some much with your front and back yard. I think water features are the coolest.
