Demonstration

Follow this simple guide to build your own brick patio.

Step 1

Place two wooden stakes into the ground about 12” past the length and width of the patio. Then stretch some string between all sides of the future patio.

Step 2

Dig your area 7” deep. It will need a slight slope to it to promote water run-off. Cover landscape fabric with about 4” of gravel, then make the surface as level as possible and tamp it.

Step 3

Add a 1” layer of sand and then screed the sand to make the surface level and even, and then tamp it down.

Step 4

Check to make sure it is level with the guide strings, and then tamp.

Step 5

Choose a brick pattern, and begin to lay bricks down starting at one of the corners, leaving 1/4” between each one. Make sure to level them with a Carpenter’s level on a piece of wood.

Step 6

Then sweep sand onto the bricks to fill in the spaces and continue until they are all filled. Carefully rinse with water.

We love the @TechoBloc Antika paver's versatility! 🤩 Because of its unique shape, it can be used as the main paver on a big project like a driveway, around oddly shaped spaces, or as a border to frame a space. We even love that it can be installed using a permeable pavement application!

This would go over top of our current cement slab? What about if we have some cracks?

Working with a small outdoor space? 🏡 A clever design strategy is to segment your space by using different colored or sized pavers and slabs. In the featured photo @techobloc Para slab is used in two different colors to define two different spaces as seperate "rooms". This creates the illusion of a larger backyard! 👀 ... See MoreSee Less
