I've discovered a new product (well, someone on a landscaper's forum actually pointed it out) that I think has fabulous potential! It's a 95% recycled material paving brick. Yup, looks like a brick, smells like a tire. I'm hopeful that fades- we'll bring the samples back in for a sniff test here eventually. It comes in many colors and a few sizes. There are three exciting points that makes it an interesting option:
1. It can be used as a permeable surface (driveway, patio, sidewalk) when installed over gravel
2. It can be used to resurface existing wood decks or concrete patios.
3. It can easily be cut into intricate designs for patio inlays.

Then, call us and we'll talk about how to use them. Flat roofs, driveways, walkways, patios, decks, staircases, oh...the possiblities!
Nothing is as wonderful as an uneventful weekend! The boys had a birthday party, a bowling party and went swimming- but for us, notta. The high point of our weekend was watching the turkeys....
...again. But seriously, aren't turkeys about the strangest looking birds out there? We can watch them flocking together under our hill, and laugh at them trying to fly through the underbrush.
