my shady, damp, zone 5 back yard, and, given the scope of the

If you are up to the trip, Bluestone has a huge clearance sale at their
Madison, Ohio facility. (Madison is near the Pennsylvania line on Lake

houses and pick what you want. The price was only $20/flat a few years ago,
but even with the price increase it is a great deal.
