Tools & Materials

  • Landscape fabric
  • 8 ton of #12 crushed stone (for base)
  • 1 ton of playground sand (sits on top of base)
  • 244 square feet of pavers (75rectangle
  • 25square)
  • 3 bags of sand to fill the joints


This was a fun, but exhausting project. This was phase one of a backyard makeover. Phase two (in late fall/early spring) will be to add planting beds around the patio with an arbor that you walk through to get to the rest of the yard. I still need to sweep in the sand between the joints, remove the mound of dirt and reroute my downspout. By calendar days, this took us about one month to do. Actual work was around 4-5 days. I had to wait for utilities to give the OK to dig and I took a weeks+ vacation.
