Can you guess how old this patio is? We were shocked to find out it’s about 55 years old—and there isn’t a single crack in it! That’s because the slender pieces of wood laid down between the concrete sections provide a buffer or a cushion. As the earth naturally shifts over the years, there is no concrete or stone butting up against each other. And in California, there is A LOT of earth shifting at times!

The wood has been replaced a couple of times but the patio itself remains intact. It’s not a bad idea if you’re looking to try something different or want to keep something that you already have. It’s definitely something that you will give you your money’s worth.
