not pretty but functional chicken chunnel or tunnel from barn to free range areas to protect from predators. My worst predator is coyote, who hunts as soon as it begins to be grey - best thing is teach them to get inside before sunset
Brick pavers make a simple, handsome border and work well as edging material. They're ideal for a wide border that keeps grass out of the garden, yet allows flowers etc. to spill over without intruding onto the grass.
