  • pebble paving

    Here's a couple of pics using local materials. These stones wash down from the mountains during the storms and get spread on the beach. You can pick them up in the river washes.

    The make a very durable pavement that is found in various places, some very decorative others just paving.

    I saw one project in Granada where they just set them in earth (clay?) and compact with a ram....

    Re: pebble paving

    I love these! Still trying to convince my long-suffering husband that this is the kind of thing we need on our front doorstep....

    Now lets see if I can find a relevant pic from our last hloiday in italy. Right. The second one isn't exactly relevant but I've wanted an excuse to post it somewhere for ages...

      That's a gorgeous stoop and rockwork. Did you get a picture of the entire door? I'd love to see it. I used to walk around a take pictures of doors in Italy.

        George, I love the different doors here and could do a book that covered the many old doors and the tosca stone framework just in this one town.

        You can create about anything with those pepple designs., the poor mans mosaic

          No, I didn't get the whole door, more's the pity. It was a really beautiful place to stay though. Our flat was on the top of a small hill on the coast, in the middle of a small medievil village. ALL the doors looked like that, so did the houses - the sort of place you walk through and think, gosh I wonder what it looks like from the inside?

          I just googled pebble mosiac... so cool... so many things to do, so little time...

              These are the pebble mosaics I was looking for on the internet. Didn't find them though, so here's a photo from out of a book...

              I don't know how well the pics will turn out, so let me just point out
              that that stuff on the walls isn't wallpaper!
