Temporary Patio

Hi All -
I am looking to build a temporary patio. We move a lot and do not want to invest in a brick/mortar structure, but would still like to have something nice outdoors. Does anyone know of something that would be cheaper than an installed patio and possibly one that you could move with you?

Please help!

Temporary Patio

You could get some 16" X 16" patio blocks:

I put some down at my last house to tie me over until I could afford the concrete for a patio for my walk-out basement. I didn't spend as much time as I should've with compacting the soil or even using sand for that matter since it was only temporary. So, it was a little bumpy and wobbly in spots... but it was probably the cheapest solution.

One problem though.. they break easily.. so, if you're planning on moving them. Be gentle.

A tent?
