garden plannings....

after much discussion, arguement, and begging...mrs jai agreed to the building of a shed at the end of the garden, so wanting to do it properly, i had a builder chum put in a concrete base, and a lovely 8x6 shed now awaits building...

it's the bit under the tarp, that has the shed in it....
anyway, yesterday and today, to spruce up the rest of the concrete, i blasted it with a jet washer, removing a ton of crud, moss, algae and god knows what else, and painted it...red...

the centre bit is for a massive mosaic the mrs wants done....
i'm of the opinion a big abarth logo, she went nuts pointing out the shed is for all the uno bits cluttering up the garage.....sheesh women...
the other bit where all the table and chairs are is to be gravelled, such a small garden doesnt really need a lawn anyway, personally i wanted a rear off road drive for the cars, but the look when i started to mention it put me off......

anyways, anyone ever done an outdoor mosaic? recommendations for the type of tile, grout etc?

a drive would be my choice.

i've never done a mosaic before, i guess thats because i have better control of my other half than you.

Water-proof and frost proof. A tile shop should be able to sort you out with something. Probably the sort of stuff you'd use for an outside swimming pool?
