How to map a multiple patio design?
Dean: Hey, I'm Dean.
Derek: I'm Derek, and we’re from DIY Networks.
Dean: Indoors Out.
Derek: And we’re going to teach you how to map out a multiple stone design that will save you money and time.
Dean: Now what is multiple stone? Multiple stone starts off by one foot by one foot pieces and increases in six-inch inclement all the way up to three feet. Now multiple stone come in blue stone, limestone, brown stone, and depending on your taste and how much money you want to spend, the choices are unlimited.
Derek: Now, once you figured out the area you want to work in which is the length times the width, we suggest you call your local supplier to find out if they have a variety of sizes, so you can start designing.
Dean: Each block on the graph paper is 6inches, so one foot by one foot piece of stone is four blocks.
Derek: Now, that’s two blocks across and two blocks down.
Derek: Now different designs bring out different types of characters.
Derek: The first one will be something contemporary. That would be rows of the same size stones that break the joints almost in like with a brick pattern.
Dean: Another one would be a random row pattern, that is where you keep going across, but you break up those rows into various sizes. The last one is a full random pattern. It has no rhyme or reason. The only things you want to be aware of, no continuous joints and no cross joints.
Derek: Or you can have a continuous joint if no more than four feet long.
Derek: Also what’s a cross joint? That’s when four stones come together and created interception.
Dean: Now once you have everything mapped down on your graphing paper you want to make a shopping list. As you’re going to go to your local quarry where you’re going to handpicked every stone you need.
Derek: If you handpicked everything that way you can take control over the color, and the shapes and the different characters of the stones.
Dean: Right and it’s always a good idea to get yourself a couple of extra large pieces in case you run short you can cut those into any size you want.
Derek: Now if you follow these simple tips, you can design and install a multiple stone pattern and it’s going to save you money and time, and you’ll enjoy it.
