    Hello,

    Yess I'm maybe crazy... but why not to use this free material for building a garden path!

    Good idea for a flat stone!

    Not an original idea. The Nazis used Jewish gravestones to pave roads.

    I would do it if I could get the flat tombstones, but I would put them carved side down. It would be a good shock to an owner down the road who would then wonder if there was a graveyard under their house.

    Where do these tombstones come from? These are markers of a human being, all that's left of them.
    It's disrespectful.
