My DIY Paver patio on the cheap....


I completed my small 12x12 square patio a while back and I thought I would share. The goal was to put in some sort of patio roughly big enough for a small outdoor table and shares or lounge chairs on a shoestring budget. I wasn't sure on the materials to be used but I passed up a sign on the side of the road next to several pallets of pavers at a really good price. I got the entire pallet for $160 delivered! Overall I think I have about $500 on the high estimate into everything. I followed the instructions on this link and it turned out pretty good.

Never done any pavers or patio stones before. I'm quite pleased with the result. It isn't really too hard. The only thing I would do differently next time is grade the area I excavated a little better before adding the ABC and compaction. The compacted soil was nice and hard but a little uneven in areas and I had to make this up with leveling the sand on top which was a PITA!
