A stone patio installation is likely the most backbreaking work you will ever do. But it’s also the most rewarding DIY! That’s because the money you save on labour can be put right back into high end finishes and accessories. In our case, that high end finish is real Travertine.
We fully intended to splurge on this stone but as luck would have it, the company was moving locations and it was on clearance! Better to sell cheap than to shlep it to the new location, I guess!
Anyway, installing real stone is as easy as pavers and looks so elegant when it’s done! So it’s nothing to be intimidated by!
Here’s the yard we’re starting with. Thankfully by the end of our stone patio installation, our neighbours’ gargantuan satellite dish is gone! What an eyesore!
