What do you do with a section of grass that seems unable to recover mostly due to a dog that excavates to cool off. Basically pave it!! The problem with bricking it all is water drainage from the shed roof above so I decided on that gravel strip. If that area wasn't dirt it was mud and both getting tracked everywhere. Clean is good.
What do you do with a door that you don't use .... brick it in!! For a long time I've talked about filling in the door that was originally designed as a second entrance to the other lot. The lots won't ever be separated so it's only a window for my dog to bark at kids passing in the street. It wasn't very attractive and the metal requires upkeep. I ordered way too many bricks for the patio so Hugo said why not use them for the door. And he needed the work.
