Bring on the yardwork- Part 1, Installing a Paver Patio

To make this Great Bring on the yardwork- Part 1, Installing a Paver Patio You’ll need the following ingredients:

Here is what our patio area looked like before, a blank and dirty 10X20 sq foot area.

And here are our materials ready to roll.  In addition to the pavers we had purchased enough sand for an inch-thick base, some rubber mallets, 2×4’s for leveling the sand, string to mark off the area and a string level.

Once the area was prepped Scott and his dad laid down the sand and leveled it with two plumbing pipes and a 2×4.  The process was actually pretty easy and accurate.  From there we started laying the pavers. Around the edges I nailed in paver edging to lock the stones into place.

Scott installing the final paver!

After all the pavers were installed we swept concrete sand into the cracks and wet down with a hose to lock into place.  And now comes the fun part, the decorating and enjoying of the patio.  More to come soon!
