Make a simple backyard beautiful with a new paver patio, you can build it yourself and we'll show you. How begin with a plan jack on Jack or running bond patterns are the simplest to install more advanced patterns like herringbone or pinwheel, require more cutting? If you want a decorative look, that's easy to install, consider stamped pavers that look like stone for size. Make sure your patio is big enough for all of your outdoor furniture and allows enough space to walk around use. Thicker pavers, if you're, adding heavy objects like a hot tub or large grill, a typical patio installation has several layers: a 6-inch layer of gravel paver base.
Then a one-inch layer of sand, followed by the pavers and finished with polymeric sand in the joints. An alternative to the gravel base is interlocking pavers panels. They're lightweight require less digging and the pavers sit right on top to mark the layout use strings and batter boards made from furring strips the layout is square when the diagonals are equal, make sure the strings are leveled too. Also, the patio needs to slope away from the house about a 1-inch drop every 4 feet. A 4 foot level with a 1-inch block of wood attached to the end, is helpful to check the slope as you're working use. Your yards natural slope, if possible, the total depth depends on the paver height, along with the base.
The paver should sit out or a little above ground level, dig about 6 inches beyond the strings and use a level to keep the slope uniform. If you're, installing landscape lighting bury the cables now after you've removed the dirt tamp the area with a rented plate. Compactor then adds a layer of landscape fabric to keep weeds down. Your patio needs the support of a gravel paver base, gravel in two to three-inch layers, wet it and run the plate compactor over it continue until you have a six-inch base. Remember to keep the slope uniform, we're adding a small retaining wall along the hill. It sits on the gravel base and is held together with construction. Adhesive next step is to pour leveling sand. Over top lay lengths of 1-inch PVC pipe across the area pour the sand. Then use a straight 2x4 to screed the sand across the pipes to create a flat surface work your way across the patio, remove the pipes and fill in the gaps with more sand.
Now that the base is finished, you can lay the pavers we'll use six by six and six by nine blocks in a running bond pattern with six by nine blocks along the border start along the edge use string set low to the ground as a guide to Keep the block straight continue, setting the pavers working toward the middle of the patio area, we're leaving a quarter inch gap between our blocks, periodically check that the tops are even to adjust, add sand underneath or tap down. You can use a straightedge to keep the blocks in line after you get some of the pavers in place. Install edging along the perimeter with spikes faced about every foot. You'll most likely need to cut some blocks to fit. Mark then cut with a circular saw with a concrete blade. An alternative is to use a wet saw once you've set. The blocks add sand to fill in between the pavers we're using polymeric jointing sand, which has additives that provide a better bond, sweep it into the joints and use a hand, tamper to settle the sand. Add more sand and repeat as needed. Remove all of the excesses, with a leaf blower to prevent hazing then lightly spray with a hose now cut the excess weed barrier, add some furniture plants and garden decor to make your new patio.
