Upcycled Concrete and Clay

I love when I get to reuse old concrete and bricks.  I had the opportunity to reuse some concrete slabs and sidewalks that were all broken up.  I laid the pieces just as I would stone for a walkway and left good sized joints for some nice walkable ground cover.  On another job I rebuilt a historic chimney on a house that was lifted for a new foundation.  I reused the original bricks from the 1870s home.urbanite pooch conklin chimney
