I agree I agree Very nicely done. I especially like the added dimension with the bricks around the pump. Cool!

Great article and the pictures are just fine. Looking at your brick path reminded me of my grandfather's garden path; he also kept the brick path narrow as he wanted to leave lots of room for the plants.

Funny thing...as I was reading your article there was a load of bricks and granite blocks sitting in my car - rescued from a demolition site - waiting to be unloaded. Thumbs up

Great article and good timing!

Oh, as no one has asked yet...what are the words on the bricks? Is it the name of the brick manufacturer?
