The pavers as a path weren't working, just creating what I call weed holes. We relocated the pavers to create an obstacle course for an RC truck, and relocated our new friend as well.
Here are a couple of photos of the foundation and chimney from the old house site. It's in our front field, and has a lot of big rocks around it. We're still pondering how to use this area. It looks really cool with all the cement and big rocks - kind of like an old ruin, all mossy and stuff. Right now that's where the fire pit is. I'm hoping to set up the outdoor kitchen near there - maybe under the shade of the maple that's growing out of one part of the foundation. Lots of potential there.

We have super sandy soil and we will be getting a liner for our garden pond that will not seal on it's own. The rocks will hold the liner in place and create habitat for whatever moves into the pond.
I have friends that have used larges roc, ks for creating terraces.
Stone walls are everywhere here in NH. Most of them are made with rounded rocks due to the large number of them dropped here when the last glaciers left.
We have a few larger rocks staged in the garden as seating.
