Tore out old deck this weekend - found this - now what???
We tore out the old deck that was 3 steps high last weekend since we are planning to seal off the old backdoor and overhang that used to lead out to the deck.
We started digging around today and found this concrete pathway.
Wanted to build some sort of paver patio from garage (where there will be a fence/gate) past the new backdoor and then spread out (somewhere) so that we could have a table/chair/grill set up. We have a boxy house so was advised to keep edges of patio rounded, if possible.
Would like to maximize space with grass as much as possible since we have a postage stamp as a backyard (and we have small children).
Knew old broken concrete step existed before demo began and thought if too hard to break apart, could always cover with raised garden bed (right?).
Did NOT expect concrete walkway and now trying to decide how to do the patio - work with the concrete path, pay to demo or cover with stepping stones?
Any suggestions on layout of the patio? I can provide a diagram if that helps...
Also, *IF* price was not an issue, with the white stucco house, yellow door and brown stained steps, do you like the brown brick pavers (that used to line the deck) or think grey cobblestone would look nicer?
