My little area is just that...little. 9 feet long and almost 3 feet wide. Easy Peasy!
So for this job I'm going to need a few supplies...
and of course the tools I already have on hand...
I bought the brick at Lowes for .56 cents each and by my calculations I would need about 100 brick. I already had 4 that I bought previously because i wanted to see if i thought it was going to look ok. But I went ahead and bought 110 just to be on the safe side. I took my gloves with me to the store to load all those bricks on to the cart and then into my car. So glad I did that!
That reminds me, I need to vacuum my car!
Anyhoo, the first thing I had to do was rake all the rock (as much as possible anyway) out of the area that the brick is going to be laid in. Not an easy job when you have 3-4 inches of 1" rocks. Not to worry...I got the job done and am ready to move to the next step...leveling the ground. Leveling might be a bit of a stretch...lets just say I made the ground as flat as I could with a shovel and rake. Moving on!
