Patio for the Secret Garden
Andrea and I have finally found an area in the backyard that seems the most private. It also isn't an area to grow anything well and sits partially underneath the sweet smelling lemon tree. For the past few months, we've placed our cheapo white plastic patio chairs in this area and found we could survey the entire yard from here. So we decided that we would make a patio. We are toying with the idea of using old bricks from fireplaces in the area or perhaps a flagstone with ground cover. I read that this is a good way to keep weeds down and sort of fits the style of the house and yard.
The first pic is the current area that has been leveled followed by the vision of our new patio. Anybody know where we could get free flagstone?
