I have a concrete driveway in mediocre condition (square slabs that are of varying conditions--some small cracks) that is on the side of the house which is narrow enough that it is not very functional as a driveway except if you're driving a compact car and a small person. Not much use really as it's a real pain to back out of and unload from. I'm trying to figure out what to do with this unused space.
My idea is to create a potty area for my dogs so that the small lawn in the back yard is kept poop-free. They would go there first out the side driveway door and then be let into the yard to play.
Is it safe to just put a lot of pine mulch down on the concrete next to my house? I would build an extra fence there to keep them in--perhaps by building some tall wood planters that would look nice from the main road. I would rather not tear up the concrete as I could just clean it all out if we were to sell. It would be more "valuable" as a driveway. We're planning on living here another couple years but not forever.
Any ideas? Pros, cons? Thank you!!
