I am writing this review so that perhaps a reader will see what a beautiful small area you can create with just a few paving stones.

Almost two weeks ago we had to have our daughter's beloved Australian Shepherd Sasha put to sleep. She was just over 16 years old and part of our family. We brought her home and buried her in a secluded area of our backyard, snuggled in her favorite quilt with her stuffed animals.

We wanted to mark this area in a special way since she had been so special to us. We found these paving stones called cobbled pavers at Home Depot. They measure 6" x 12 ", are a grey color and look like many smaller pavers in each one.

Using 12 of these and arranging them horizontally and vertically we were able to create an area just the perfect size we needed, 24" x 36". We made sure the dirt was settled and leveled it off, covered it with the weed resistant plastic and then just put the pavers down. It was very easy to do with such a small area.

We planted gerber daisies, mexican heather and miniature mums around the pavers. We had saved Sasha's water bowl and put this out on the pavers filled with water for the birds. A small stone miniature statue of an Aussie completed our tribute.
