    Put them on NextDoor or Craig’s List for free...they will be gone within hours. I am in Vancouver, Wa ... would take them in a heartbeat. Oh...and tell people they must pick up...and then make sure you are not alone when the time is arranged...man or woman...there are people who could be up to no good.

    Do you have a yard? Build you a small fire pit to enjoy in the fall! Or enjoy now, since a small fire can keep mosquitoes down! I wish I had a place, but we are living in an apartment for a while!

    Hey “ G”! What a treasure! How about a fire pit? Dig your hole and build around it w/the bricks . Or perhaps a fairy garden, a small fountain, Some planter boxes even. Do you need some markers? Those would work.

    The bricks have holes? Plant succulents in them and start you a new garden!

    Make some stepping stones.


    Have kids around?

    Put their, feet prints, fingerprints, handprints, names, ages, or do a family tree ( family brick house even )

    “ we never fall apart at the seams! “

    I hope this gives you a few ideas

    Good Luck☘️

    We used bricks for borders around our flowerbeds. They are sunk partially in the ground so we can mow right over them. It worked out great.

    Is there a space in your yard or garden where you might like a small path? A firepit is another great idea! Or you might use them as a simple garden bed border.

    I place a brick or two into a container before filling it with dirt to take up space in the pot, allow for better drainage, and to save expensive potting soil. If you stagger the bricks in the pot you will have the best drainage.
