Backyard Renovation Part II: The Paver Patio

The road to the outdoor room of our dreams was paved with good intentions... and sand, gravel, pavers and a lot of sweat.

The first step was removing the old patio which was made out of concrete and bordered by an asphalt pathway. We are lucky we have friends who have all these wonderful power tools. Even more lucky that they are willing to come over and help us by using them!

Once all the concrete was out, everything had to be leveled off.

Then came truckload after truckload of stone, crushed stone and sand.

We had to tamp eveything down. Then finally we were ready to begin laying the pavers.


Almost done and we realize we don't have enough pavers left. Ugh!

  1. Wow, I bet that was a ton of work! Isn't it nice to have good friends that come around even when you want to put them to work! It's really going to look great.
