The hole is dug (too deep, I had to buy more mortar and concrete sand than expected.
First border bricks laid in. I am using used bricks but wanted the larger (more stable?) bricks around the edge. Had to buy those.
The outside is 2/3 complete. I am leaving the last side open until I have all the sand screeded.
This first design looks very nice. but with the cutting of so many bricks it would take too long to made 28 of them. Will make one in each outer corner and call it macaroni.
Another shot of the square.
