    Has anyone ever done a mosaic tile patio? I am looking for designs, tips, and helpful suggestions.

    I have a back patio area that has always just been gravel. I haven't made any decisions yet but I would like to put a decorative tile pattern down and some privacy screening around it.

    I am thinking of putting vinyl fencing or lattice up for screening. But, that's all the farther I have gotten as far as decision-making goes. TIA. :flower3:

    Portugal has some of the most beautiful mosaic tile patterns.

    There is a big slab of concrete at that patio door and we haven't been able to move it. DH rented a bobcat for projects around the property and he & DS decided to see if they could move that chunk of cement with it.

    They wrapped a chain around it to pull it away from the house.

    Then picked it up a little and drug it away from the house more.

    Success so far!

    Now they are going to cut it up into smaller pieces so as not to damage the bobcat while they haul it away.

    I'm glad to get this part done but I know this isn't the project DH was hoping to get done today! :rolleyes1
