  1. I love the picture of the garden edging with brick, and I like that you pointed out that it cleanly edges the lawn and garden beds. My husband and I are trying to figure out a way to separate our garden from the rest of the yard, and I like the look of brick. I think a benefit of adding bricks to your landscaping is that it would add a really charming country feel to your overall landscape.

  2. My wife and I love outdoor relaxation, things like sipping coffee in the morning while catching sunlight, and so we wanted to make the best use of our yard after we clean it up. I found your example of a Patio Floor very ideal as it allows for a nice amount of space to even set up a dining area around it as well. The way your article showed the use of bricks has convinced me to look for a brick paver that can pull off a design like that. Thank you!

  3. Its purpose is to separate two different types of ground materials, such lawn and pavement, without posing a tripping hazard. Lawn mowing and weed wacking are easy, and the overall appearance is tidy.
