Paving Stone Patio

Tumbled paving stones - arranged in a rustic, "weathered" pattern. This was fun to do and not particularly difficult - when dry stacked on a flat prepared surface and filled in with soil, you don't need mortar and can plant small succulents like sedum and portulaca between the stones for a very picturesque look.

Close up: tea leaf camellia shrub, crimson snapdragons, Irish moss - you're supposed to be able to make green tea out of the camellia leaves - same family as the plant they make real tea from - but I haven't tried this yet.
