So, in an effort to return another 100 sq ft of my tiny little property back to the wilds...I want to jackhammer and break up about an 8x12 concrete slab and remove it.

The question is...what can I do with the broken up pieces? I'm not a jackhammer artist, so they will be random shapes and sizes. (Nevermind the wall block and the water barrel.)

Any suggestions? What would you do with a pile of concrete rubble?

Personally, I'd throw it in the creek to slow the water down and help prevent erosion. Big Grin

You could use it as borders of raised beds, maybe even try making a spiral with them. Use them as stepping stones in a path.

I would use it on my driveway to keep it from eroding out into the street.

Erosion prevention would actually be the most useful repurpose, and I need it...so good call.
