Trash Can Patio

Finally decided where to permanently place my outdoor trash and recycle cans. Now to build the Trash Can Patio! The future finished look will include a trellis where the pallet is, a butterfly bush in front of everything, new landscaping timber for edging, and a butterfly bush in front of everything to soften the corner of the house. Will post again when finished!
My first thought was to pour a concrete slab, but the 12" concrete pavers were much more economical. This is the 1st row done.
My youngest's way of saying, "Momma, it's time to take a break and play with me!"
Third row done. Learning how to "pave" this small scale project is preparing me for a larger paver project in the back yard.
Test driving the Trash Can Patio and making plans to finish the area.

    How did you make sure the pavers were level? I am trying to do the same thing for my trash cans storage.

    I think it is a great idea. Wont to do mine like that as well. Do need a cover or something on side not to show from street. So why did you put bag under? What did you use for ramp getting on and off?

    I'm so glad you would take ideas from us, but I think your doing a great job adding good things. My only idea would be to add two more rows in front of the cans for moving them in and out and maybe a taller fence for hiding the cans. The plants are good too. Thanks for your suggestions.
