We needed an outdoor space for our family (of 7) to be able to eat outside. We also like to entertain friends and family so the crowds can get big quick! This was my first brick patio project. Of course I didn't start small!!! I used two different size bricks in a pattern and added a contrasting gray soldier course border. I also added the two wall stone planters. The pation can be access from the side driveway, from my workshop, or fron the rear garage door. Not shown, it now houses a moveable fireplace and canopy that covers the table & chairs. We also planted a tree at the edge to grow and provide shade.
