The soil IS a tank
Replacing concrete with brick pathways like these, the water seeps into the ground, instead of swishing by dying plants down the stormwater drains. I found this charming place in Aukland: block by block, part of the street was taken over by this fellow who's hobby was laying this meandering reclaimed brick. That was the 50's Like attracts like, and it is still an enclave of creativity, deliciousness and uniqueness.
If you know of someone who can re-arrange my bricks in this wild way, please introduce me.
