This was a project I started last summer; it's a corner of my yard known as the "Zen Garden." I hate to see good rocks go to waste, so I used these stones from my yard (as well as some given to me by my good friend Candace) to make a "patio" floor. They are placed in a level, dirt footing (nothing high-tech here). All I do is sweep them off every so often. Plus, they make a nice stone "mulch" to keep the weeds at bay.
