We made this garden walkway with a mold that we purchased at Lowe's. We mixed the Quickcrete up and then poured it into the mold a section at a time. It was almost like making mud pies. It was a bit time consuming but we were very happy with the end result. It has held up very well as it has been down now for about 3 years.

Looks great. Is there anything in between the stones to keep weeds out?
The second floor doesn't seem to smell, which is why i think it's coming from the basement. It's worst in the morning. And when I turn on my heat or a/c, that odor comes through my
vents! 1) I have a very good Santa Fe dehumidifier running, 2) I've had the ductwork checked and it's fine. 3) I've been told by multiple hvac guys that i just need to seal the air leaks along the galvanized ducts, which I've done with foil tape to the best of my ability. Could there be a problem with the hvac system beyond the air leaks? Do I need to take measures to seal the floor and walls to remove the odor in the basement?

Yes the french drain is open on the top-- looks like it's soil covered with rocks and stones.
It does get damp along the one wall that is facing the back yard (and our yard slopes a little bit toward the house.) I'll look into getting that sealed. could there be mold in there?
Ozone-- yikes-- sounds serious. I read on the EPA's website that ozone, when administered in safe/appropriate levels, does not work to remove odors. And I'd be concerned with using higher levels than that- isn't it dangerous?
