what do you think?
do you think this would get used?

what materiels could i use?
the path and patio that is definalty going down is sandstone, so would be a bit pricey to have that as a path going round but if i used anything cheaper, would it look really crap next to the sandstone?
if i dont use sand stone what could i use?

not planning on moving or selling or anything anf this is a family house in a family area, but i guess what im about to do is highly personal?

what are your thoughts?

We have always had problems keeping the grass alive until we invested in sandstone 'stepping stones' in a line from the patio to the playhouse at the back of the garden. The dcs use them and I use them for when I'm hanging out the washing. Grass has never lasted so long!

Its actually a normal garden shed which we originally bought to store stuff in, and ds and dd3 have comandeered it to play schools and 'offices' in. They are in there a lot - more so than the old 'wendy house' it replaces.
