Patio Installation

Even the most inexperienced do-it-yourselfer can install a simple patio or dress up an existing space. All it takes are the right tools and the right instruction. We've gathered everything you need to know from start to finish. If you're beginning from scratch, start with a little prep to successfully construct a beautiful patio. We'll show you how to choose materials, create a pattern from stone, and finish the job -- all in less than a day. You can make a patio out of any number of materials, including pavers or a slab. For a slab patio, you'll need to lay out the site; we give you the how-to for staking it properly. Edging your patio will help it maintain a clean edge next to your lawn or flowerbed, but not every material is the same; learn the differences among edging materials and how to choose what's right for you. If your old patio is in need of a little tender loving care, you can salvage it. Learn how to do resurface concrete and rejuvenate your old space. Asphalt requires different steps, but you can learn those here, too.
