The question is what is recycled concrete? It is concrete; typically drive ways or walkways that have been removed with no screen mesh or re-bar in it. These pieces of broken concrete (average thickness of about 4 inches) make a great building material for walls or patios, and here we have laid it out as flagstones to create this entry walk. It is mortared in and there are also little bits of brick added just for looks. I have attached a close up of another patio we did with this material.

This was my favorite on your site! I like the pathway style, though I don't know that it would go with our house's style.
