Default "waffle" pavers?

I had the same issue getting to my garage.
No sidewalk straight to the driveway from the fort door.
We wore a path in the grass until I put down a narrow paver walkway.
That was a lot of work, even doing it wrong.

That reminds me of a story about architects who designed a college
campus. They put up all the buildings but didn't put in any sidewalks.
They waited a few years until the students wore paths in the grass to
show where to put the sidewalks.


That sounds like a neat idea! Too bad it probably wouldn't work today,
the building inspector and other government agency's would want to know
where the sidewalks are going before the first shovel of dirt is moved.
