While in Barbados, we noticed the creative re-use of bricks and other building materials, in the making excellent mixed paving. The bricks, it turns out were made available after the demolition of plantation buildings ( mainly old chimneys). The bricks made mostly in Scotland were used as ballast on the ships that in turn, took sugar and molasses in the easterly direction.

|Cinder-blocks interplanted with low growing grass make a great parking space.|
