Good news!  My friends have a bunch of bricks they want to get rid of.  Since they are only a few blocks from my house, I can load down my van with bricks without causing any harm.  Some of the bricks are solid, but some have holes.   I have one path filled with solid bricks.  It looks nice, but I think it will still feel sloppy until the entire thing is filled in and finished.  Place the bricks with holes sideways and use more bricks, or come up with a creative way to fill the holes so weeds don’t pop through…any suggestions?

    1. I started to take the sideways approach but quickly began to realize just how many bricks that would require. I'm going to try fighting with the holes for awhile...we'll see what happens.

  2. Creative way to fill the holes if they are large enough-- plant thyme in them, let the thyme grow crazy. When you step on it, you will have a most delicious aroma. I planted thyme between pavers of my raised bed and it was a nice experience to tromp on the herbs!

    1. I was pondering some sort of plant that can be stepped on. Good to know you've had luck with it. Meanwhile, I threw some vinegar down to kill the weeds.
