    Are the pavers loosely placed in the pebbles or secured in spot? Thanks

        20. Push a table up against the wall. On a narrow patio you may not be able to have a larger table surrounded by chairs and still be able to pass through. But if you consider shoving it to the edge when not in use, you can have the best of both worlds.

        1. Where would I play croquet?2. Wow, I could weed this in five minutes.3. Someone pour the wine!OK. All done? Now add up all the numbers you wrote down. If you scored:13–21: You are definitely not a candidate for downsizing, and can totally ignore my next several ideabooks.22–30: Brace yourself — there is a move in your future. You are definitely showing signs of being bitten by the “maybe it’s time to downsize” bug.31–39: Call the moving company! And watch for the next installment in this series on the secrets to successful downsizing.More: Houzz Tour: Comfy and Cozy in 630 Square Feet

        "Carpeted" space. A compact space between the kitchen door and the perimeter wall, this side yard has a playful floor treatment that turns it into something quite special.The "carpet" of different square and rectangular pavers is laid on a bed of contrasting crushed rock. The random-looking (but probably quite carefully arranged) pattern creates a dynamic energy that moves the eye through this space and makes coming here a treat.Another reason this design is so successful is the light hand with which it is accessorized: The furnishings and plants are classically simple, with one material (teak) and one color (parrot orange). Nice work!
