The biggest eyesore is the ugly slab of concrete. For years I dreamed about removing it and adding pavers, but I’m realistic and knew that would be a ton of work and a lot of money. Then I got one of those brilliant ideas, that kind of idea that makes Jack look at me like I lost my mind. But it was genius and it worked awesomely…
We cut pavers into the concrete. It sounds ridiculous I know, but it was so easy! Jack started by cutting the border of the slap into brinks using a grinder and a diamond concrete blade. He was surprised how easy it was and it only took 15 minutes for him to cut the whole border.
Later that day, I used a piece of chalk to freehand the rock shaped pavers on the slab, incorporating any cracks. Once I was satisfied with the shapes I got my turn to use the grinder and cut out the “rock paver”. I figured since I had the image of what I wanted in my head it would be best if I did the cutting and it was fun. It also only took me 30 minutes to cut them all out.
Phase one of the courtyard is completed, next up rocks and weed barrier!
