Doormat

I first saw this type of doormat, below, in a centuries old French garden (cobblestones set in gravel). As perfect as this entry, below, is I want to take it back
further. Do you know what I mean?

Do you know how?

The container. Fabulous, but too new for this landscape.
.
We have already sourced a new container, almost a century old, in Birmingham, AL.

When the new container arrives the current era will be blended across the past.
.
Timelessness, a grace in every landscape fortunate enough to wear it.

Easy method: stenciling some bricks on the concrete. Full monty method: jack-hammering out the concrete to extend the border. Or is there a third option?

Interesting way to use pavers and concrete.
