This week we’ve gotten some serious work done on the patio area but there is quite a lot still to do; isn’t there always? Thursday I brought a truckload of sand to cover the gravel. The sand helps when setting the stones in place by creating a soft layer that is easily manipulated for leveling the stones.
Here is how it looks with 250+ paving stones put in place. They are made of concrete and shaped to look like rustic cobblestones. I need to set about 150-200 more paving stones to complete the patio. Some of those stones will need to be cut to fit the irregular shaped corners and curves. That’ll be fun!
Here’s the beginning of the patio project.
