Build a paver courtyard to create a place outdoors where you can relax and enjoy time with family and friends. Start with a detailed plan that includes where you want your yard that is on your property, how you want it to look and how much you’re willing to spend on it. Prepare the area for diy paver patio. You have to dig the earth. Contact the utilities in your area, if any, the identification of buried cables or pipes before starting to dig. Dig at least six more than the thickness of the pavers’ inches. Tamp the soil to create a level space.
Create the basis for the diy paver patio. Put your best efforts in making the layers of gravel and sand. It makes a good base which would be a collection of cobblestones lying dangerously underfoot in a beautiful and functional patio.
Establish commercial grade landscaping fabric over the entire area. Add as little as 4 inches to as much as 10 inches of crushed gravel on top of the fabric. If sand is not level, the diy paver patio will not be level. Termination. Set the stones to the yard in the sand. Spread dry sand across the cobblestones.
