Patios and porches are an integral part of Southern culture. These classics are inviting and inspiring.
The brick in this patio came from buildings that were torn down in the area. The biggest problem with using antique brick is that the sizes aren’t uniform. That can make it tough to lay out a patio, so set the brick in sand, rather than concrete, to give a relaxed and aged look. The sand also helps level odd-size bricks.
