How to Build the Perfect Patio

A step-by-step guide to your DIY patio installation.

A patio is a beautiful addition to any yard and can be custom designed to suit your distinctive tastes. By exploring the various paver options and decorating accordingly, you can create a secret getaway in your very own backyard.

If you prefer sipping tea in an English garden, try using cobblestone pavers for the patio. Keep shrubs and flowers well manicured and furnish the patio with a small wrought iron table and chairs.

To achieve a more rustic feel, stone pavers may be a better choice. Try leaving wide uneven joints and plant various wild flowers around your patio. An Alpine picnic table would be a great addition to your forest retreat.

If you are looking for a tranquil place to unwind, use slate pavers to create a calm and peaceful setting. Plant ferns and lilies around the patio and add a fountain for aesthetics.

There are many other options to explore and once your patio is constructed, you will have a solid foundation for creating your personal haven.

Creating Your Perfect Patio

Prior to beginning any project, it is important to draw up a plan. Now this is the fun part as you can be as creative as you'd like. Pavers come in many different colors, shapes and sizes, and can also be cut in order to attain a custom design. Once you've decided on the color, shape and size of your desired patio it's time to get to work.

Tools:
Pick
Shovel
Rake
Hand-compacter or power-compacter* (depending on size of project)
Masonry saw* (if pavers need to be cut)
Safety goggles
*Tools can be rented at most hardware stores

Supplies:
Pavers
Stone dust*

*Can be delivered from either stone quarry or landscaping company

Begin by digging all the sod out from where the patio is to be. You can save some of the sod for later or plant it in another area and it will continue to grow. If below the freshly dug up sod you find any type of granular soil, such as sand or gravel, you can use this as the base for your patio. Simply place a layer of stone dust over the base (a minimum 3 inches) rake it out evenly and then compact it using either a hand-compactor or power-compacter.

Next, place in pavers as desired and work into stone dust until pavers are flat. If a round or curved patio shape is desired, cuts will need to be made on certain pavers. Use a masonry saw to make the desired cuts. Be sure to wear safety goggles and take precaution when using the saw.

After pavers are in place, spread stone dust or sand across pavers and then sweep the dust off allowing it to settle into the joints created by the pavers.

If needed, use some of the left over sod to fill in any empty spaces around the edges of your patio. If you would like a shiny finish on your patio, paver or concrete sealer can be applied.
