  • How long is your run from Patio to shed? I was taught how to do it with a sharp atraight edge shovel, but if you have a long way to go that will really take some muscle. Possibly rent tools from Home Depot for the day?

    Similar to doing rolled lawns...except you are taking it up. Cut the lawn section to be removed in to manageable sized 'roll section,' using a flat shovel, push it to the desired depth of what you want to extract & push forward taking up each section, rolling it as you go, then setting aside or relocating each roll to it's new location...[fill in low spots or thin spots in your yard if you have any]; once you have the area cleared of the sod, take a level test each area to see if it's level [add or remove as necessary]. Make sure that you leave extra depth for a shallow layer of sand under the pavers to set them in; then add sand on top to fill in spaces. Hope this helps!

    You might consider using a roto-tiller to chop up the area, then shovel the loose soil and grass up and carry it away. Also, when we laid our brick walkway, I laid two thick layers of cardboard over the entire walkway area to kill any remaining weeds and grass before we laid the brick in place. Keep the cardboard wet to hold it in place or use garden stakes to secure it.
