Rejuvenating your outdoor patio area is a great weekend project, easily accomplished with some pavers and gravel. Best of all, its light on your pocket too!
Having a paved patio area not only looks great and can boost the value of your property, but it is also a wonderful extension of your living area. So deciding where you want it to be is very important.
Pegging It Out Helps Your Planning
Pegging it or roping out the area where you want it to be gives you a visual representation of how big your patio is actually going to be. Then it’s time to make sure the ground is level and free of obstructions such as tree roots.
Discuss & Move It Around
Try laying out your pavers in varying positions within the area to decide which ones look good where and in what patterns.
Once you have decided upon a design, remove your pavers and lay down the paver base and sand which needs to be levelled firmly. Then lay the pavers and surround with gravel to fill in the gaps, then voilà! One stunning free draining paved patio area!
