Leigh Adams Mosaic Arboretum Snake

Once mosaic is laid and grouted, bricks can be used as doorstops, garden borders, and walkway inserts that bring touches of color and light to the landscape and sparkle up any corner. Two mosaicked bricks, side by side, become a centerpiece, hotplate, or stepping stone. We be you can’t make just one! (
