Busting Up The Patio–Part III…

…or should I now say putting it back together?

This stage involves setting the recycled or “recovered”  concrete pieces as pavers to make the new patio. It takes time and patience to secure the right piece and position, not to mention keeping the level and grade. 

For those wondering what is going to fill in the spaces between each new stone or paver, there are several options.  The sand or base sand fills the first half and then you can top off with decorative pebbles, rocks, or finish sand. The option we have selected is to fill it with mulch with the occasional use of cobbles.  Perhaps this photo will give a better idea of what I am trying to convey…

It may be a few days before the next update…so stay tuned…!
