    Unless he lives where it freezes. In the winter, snow and ice will melt, get between and under the bricks only to heave them up once the water re-freezes at night.

    That's a really good idea for our current concrete patio. We also could paint it.


    First thoguh, it's need a little TLC. It's raised, but didn't have poured footings on the perimeter, so the aggregate based si exposed and it's not undercut. I'll probably need refill it and put up maybe a brick face around it to protect it.
