Careful planning required
Patios and adjoining paths are created using a wide variety of stones referred to as pavers. The initial process involves laying out the design, setting elevations and excavating where necessary. It is very important to create a gentle slope (approx 1″ / 10′) to run water away from structures.After the initial preparation a minimum 6 inch base is leveled and power compacted several times. The pavers are then laid on a screeted bedding material, power compacted and sanded. Most patios require considerable cutting and must have a high quality edging restraint.Patios tend to be more functional and aesthetically pleasing when connected to other yard features by matching paver pathways.
