Have you heard the old saying, â€ If life gives you lemons, make lemonadeâ€? Well we at citymade say, â€œIf life gives you an old pile of bricks, make a brick patio!â€
Friend of citymade, Heidi, had a pile of bricks in the back of her garage. I (Carol) had been wanting to make a patio in my front yard (since I canâ€™t get anything to grow there). There were approximately 300 bricks in the pile and, since Heidi lives close, we were able to make a few car trips in order to move them.
Then, Melany and I spent a day digging and leveling the yard and eventually laying the bricks. Now we have a nice, bricked front with out the worry of mowing what little grass there was or pulling the unsightly weeds.
