One of the first things we are going to tackle is a sidewalk. I really want guests to use our front door, but it's silly to require them to walk through a soupy, muddy front yard to do so. We also need to build up the dirt to our first step so people can reasonably climb the stairs. (And it goes without mentioning that I am going to have to kill the spiders who are hanging out around my front door and clean the webs off, etc.)
So what do I want for a sidewalk? Pavers. I really like the idea of pavers, and I love how we-did-this-on-our-own they look. See for yourself:

minus the different colors of pavers.
We want all gray since our house is gray.)
But cross your fingers for us. And if you've done this and have advice, feel free to weigh in :)
