You can tear up the concrete pads or you can level them out with sand and set brick pavers over the top to make them look more attractive. You'll need to construct wooden forms all the way around the slabs to keep the sand and the bricks in place. If you have the concrete torn out, you can sometimes build landscape walls or raised beds by stacking up the pieces. Good luck with your project.
