I loved the steps so much, I created another set of steps at the other end of the lagoon.
For the floor of the lagoons area, I was wanting a cobblestone appearance with a large compass in the center. Well, I've begun with the faux cobblestone--- and so far, I'm pretty happy with how it is turning out. I am using some old irregular sized clay brick that I am setting with a large dirt grout area around each one. Once all the cobblestones/bricks have been set, I am going to create a compass in the center and then give everything a paint job of grays, browns and some black to create an old-old look. Fingers crossed it will look good!
