A Paver Patio Installation

Earlier in spring, I added a paver patio to my backyard, connecting my back door with a screened porch. My backyard is much more inviting now, with the addition of a solid patio and beautiful seating. I love having a patio! This was not a DIY project, I hired professionals for this job and it was well worth it.

After a compacted base of sand and gravel were added, the stone pavers being installed.

Mostly finished.
And completed and ready to decorate and use!
Tada! The new paver patio all decorated for Summer.
Potted flowers add a lot of color to the patio.

It's been so great having a new patio to enjoy this year! Here's a look at the patio project and cost breakdown:

    What holds it all together? Its raised, so what prevents the sides from falling off?

      If you look at the post you can see the base is sand and gravel. Professionals installed it on a base and then added the pavers on top. There are edge stones around the bottom to secure it all.

    Very nice 👍🏻. Personally I would put up some sort of pergola/canopy or even a sunbrella for some shade/privacy. Enjoy!☯️
