Amy: Building an outdoor patio can enhance your backyard experience as well as boost your home equity. Here are a few things to consider if you want to transform your boring backyard into a luxurious living area.
First to the area for your patio must be excavated. Next, a bed of gravel becomes the foundation, a one inch layer of the sand that tops your gravel base. And these are clay pavers and these are kilned at a higher temperature than bricks are so they are perfect for your patio.
Once the pavers are set, a fine layer of dry play sand that fills the cracks and a quick spray downs gets everything cleaned.
Building a patio is a great way to boost equity in your home and it’s also a nice way to bring the indoors out. I’m Amy Matthews from DIY Networks, sweat equity.
