Its so beautiful. How much did it cost for such an area. And how did u achieve that color? worship

Thanks
Thank you Smilie

Total cost for my little 12x4 patio was about $150 and half a bottle of pain relievers.

15 for the mold
60 for the quickrete
15 for a small shovel (to mix and load it up)
5 for the top soil
50 for the 7 plants

Nothing was done to achieve the colors, thats how it finished. I just mixed, poured, and worked it smooth.

We used these pavers on our massive patio last year and I love them. I found a picture of the work in progress.

We also poured and stamped a 15 x 20 patio for my mom 2 years ago and it had coloring stuff in it. It was strange how you put it on - when the concrete was firmish to the touch, then you threw it across & then you stamped it. Kinda like feeding chickens. Anyway, it turned out beautifully. Most of the time was in the forms and leveling. Stamping/coloring only took about an hour and a half.

Finally went out and bought a bunch for our patio. Had to do some planning and also ordered bulk sand. From what I've researched, we only need sand to cover our concrete patio then put the pavers on top. No edging since all sides are surrounded by wall or house. However, it's going to be difficult to cut the bricks just right to fit inside the confined space along with some curved areas.

I wonder if we need the polymeric sand or can we just use regular sand to fill on top since from what I understand, the poly sand keeps the pavers together which is not a problem for us. Anyone with experience with this? Thanks in advance.

The new place I moved into has carpet all over and my PC Case (designed to be kept on the floor) has trouble sucking in air from the bottom; might be a good idea to use these as a base laugh out loud

I use an angle grinder with either masonry grit or diamond wheels. Cut the top, then break the rest of the way with hammer and chisel. Curves suck no matter what.

As for the poly sand, it helps lock the pavers in place. Even if theyre confined on all sides, there is always a bit of movement. It also helps keep weeds and moss from growing between stones.

If you don't mind doing a little more work, I could suggest doing something like this.

Walkmaker [amazon.com]

I did this for a patio (about 12' x 4') a few weeks ago. It took about a dozen 80lb bags of quikrete, some sweat, and a sunny Sunday to complete. No need to level the ground, or add sand, etc either.

Here is a pic of the work in progress. It looks a little dirty, but I had just finished filling in the cracks with a second layer of top soil.
Is that your washer run off pictured? What do they call that vented pipe? thats exactly what I been looking for.

I think I saw somewhere that a pallet can hold 120sq feet of bricks. You need 4.5 of these 4x8 bricks to cover a square foot. So, that comes out to around 540 bricks per pallet in my mind (can anyone confirm?)

I just measured out the dimensions of the minimal areas I'd want a patio in my small yard, and I think if I got a pallet it would be about enough (maybe slightly under). The biggest problem is getting the bricks into our yard - there's no access gate to the yard so the only way we would be able to get the bricks there is to bring them through the house Frown I'd say toss them over the wall but there's a short hill with vegetation that has been planted by the association. So trampling those plants and getting up that hill probably wouldn't be much fun... I'm still struggling with how we could do this. Would probably have to end up throwing down plastic sheets and cardboard over the carpet and create a path to the kitchen/deck/yard area for a wheelbarrow or two... We'd still have to load the bricks into the wheelbarrow too (and multiple times). Sounds like it would be quite a bit of labor just to move the bricks (not to mention the sand too). Ugh

I'm not trying to threadcap or anything but the 12x12 stones for 1.11 normal and commonly at 99c ea seem a better way to go for patios and walks.

Those 12x12's are too thin for there size. Therefore they will tend to crack and crumble over time.

800 Bricks in a pallet.

But that won't get you very far. Its amazing how many bricks go down in a small space. My 14x14' patio took about 700 oversized bricks (11.5x2.25" vs 8x2.25") and I still could use a few more.

Here is my patio I'm currently working on. I have since built a 6' stone bench on the left side, between the yard and the patio. I was using a "Norman" style brick which are more expensive and harder to find. I got 415 for free when they tore the building down next door. I thought that was plenty until I got into it. 300 more bricks later and it's finally starting to look like a patio.

It also takes LOTS of sand and pain killers... and beer. This is maybe my fourth week working on it after work and weekends.

That is actually my sump pump run off in the picture. It was already installed when I bought my house, so I have no idea what they call that vented pipe.

nice pics, thanks for sharing.


How do you prevent weeds from coming up btw the cracks? We used heavy bricks (on sale from a factory) and weeds consistently come up every year despite the sand we put down underneath and weed blanket at the bottom...


also great scriptures quoted. Smilie
