Paved patio on two diffrent surfices

I am removing an old deck that is next to a concrete patio, there is nothing but dirt under the deck. I want to create on big area using pavers, preferably without needing to take out the concrete patio. Looking for the best strategy to do that.

Simple do some googling about how to install a paver patio then get back with any specific questions, got to do your initial homework!

I agree with Marq1. Do some leg work checking out several of the many videos on the internet. Visit your library which probably has books on patios. Finally, visit your local Happy Depot to become familiar with materials and tools.

First thank you both for taking the time to reply.
I think I wasn't as clear as I should have been with my question but I have done research and asked around. While there is a lot of data on how to pave over concrete and a lot of data on how to pave after removing a deck. My concern and question is about how to assure long term durability and homogeneity of the paved surface that half of it is over concentrate and the other over a standard gravel and sand bed. I tried but could not find information about this particular concern. If you do have data or links that can help please do share.

Thank you again,

Boaz

Much clearer, yes you can install pavers over concrete, a lot of driveways are done that way. The area where the deck is will be conventional construction, limestone, or what ever is used in your area. compacted in layers to archive a good solid base.

Either is susceptible to improper installation but if done correctly both will live a long life!

If you want the best paver patio, you would concrete the half that is currently gravel, ensuring correct grade is on the concrete for drainage. Then put your pavers on that.
