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!
