Before the snow or, more likely, the fallen leaves cover the ground, it’s a good time to squint at your paving (what Marjorie Harris calls “creative staring”) to see if there’s anything you can do better. Here are a couple of beautiful mosaic paving designs from the Atlanta Botanical Garden. [Update: Paving design is by Amanda Conahan of Amanda Elizabeth Mosaics and was installed by T.B. Penick & Sons of San Diego.]
These are big – but yours don’t have to be. A single mosaic paver in the centre of the patio, perhaps?
Put on your paving caps and go for it!
