Thanks everyone .. as for learning how there are quite a few videos onl;ine if you google " Red brick patio or red brick path " . but basically you clear the grass from the area you want to use , level off the ground if needed , If you have a ground packing tool  this would be the time to use it ( We didnt have one and We didnt mind the character of the ground being a tad uneven especially since our brick have a ton of texture anyway and wouldnt be flat no matter what We did Smiley )  Next place a layer of weed barrier ( ours was 1 $ at the $ store for an 8x4 sheet - We used 2 sheets ) then you add a thin layer of sand and loose gravel and start placing your bricks in what ever pattern you choose ( some of them can get really intricate and awesome )  then you sweep more loose sand and gravel into the cracks until everything is nice and firm ..Over the next few days try to walk on it " evenly " and if you feel any loose bricks sweep in more sand and gravel - especially after a big rain when the ground is squishy .. this will lock everything nice and tight ( The pathway next to the pond has been laid since late april and feels like its been there forever Smiley

He everyone , Check out our new patio right off the pond so We have a great view . Reclaimed red brick free on Craigs list We just had to load and haul it . 18$ worth of pea gravel and sand - about 8 bags of gravel and 1 bag of sand , and 6 landscaping timers 19 $   I Love it so much and We are going to do another boarder of landscape timbers around the 2 sides to create a flower bed edge

 before and after






 Thanks for looking , My Hubby is so proud of this . It only took us a few hour spread out over two days

Have a great night

I made a quick diy plant stand from a recycled old wrought iron aquarium stand thats been hanging around forever ! , 1$ floral wire and 3 dollar store planters ! I love it , Now I just need some more plants for it and to decide what to do with the bottom ( more planters or plant directly in the soil ..?) .. this section of our yard near the pond We plan to use bricks or landscaping timbers filled with pea gravel to make a little sitting area . ...note the planters were too small squared up so I placed them on the diagonal and used wire to secure them in place


I love making use of items that might  otherwise end up in the trash
 Thanks for looking and have a great day

Thanks for the positive feed back ! Yes I do live in an area that frosts ( Illinois zone 5 )  The pond is actually sunken into the ground 12 inches but 12 inches still remain above ground . Im still researching and chatting with other pond owners about how to winterize it . I may get a heater and wrap the pond with insulating wrap for winter ooor I may end up bringing the fishies inside to overwinter thru the rough weather . I wish My house was bigger I would already be sitting up a holding tank for them and letting it cycle now  I figure in My zone Ill need to have a plan By mid sept . I only have 8 fish so if I have to bring them in Im thinking a larger rubbermaid with a hob filter should suit them thru the rough months . Ill post updates along the way
