We bought our house last fall, and right in front of our house, leading to the front door, there are small stones buried in the ground. They seem to be evenly spaced out, but they were pretty deep in the ground. I thought they were some stepping stones that had sunk into the ground. We'd found a bunch of 12x12 inch blocks buried in the back yard last fall. Since the weather is so beautiful, I thought I'd just pop them out.
We eventually, we plan to dig the whole thing up and put rock and sand under it to even out the path more. There are a few bricks poking through on the outside edges of the path, so we think it is lined with bricks. I plan to widen the path and make that front area between the path and the brick flower box into a flower bed.
So, there it is, my hidden treasure! I'm pretty excited at what a change this weekend project ended up making to my front yard!
