How To Build a Patio In Less Than a Day

You can build a patio for your home without even learning how to build a patio. At any garden or home improvement store, you will find those ‘walkway’ stones.

They usually come in many different shapes, sizes and colors. To build a patio using these, and without pouring any cement at all, you just figure out how large you would want your patio.

For example, if you want a 100 square foot patio, you would want to pick up a hundred of these ‘walkway’ squares. They usually come in one foot squares. This is one of the quickest ways to learn how to build a patio. Once you know what you want and you have your materials, you will want to dig up and level your ground.

You can use a rake and a shovel for this. Use the rake to make the dirt nice and even and then set your stepping stones on the ground and line them up next to each other.

Of course, to make one that is perfectly square, you would place ten rows of ten. Make sure to leave as little space as possible between the stones. Then you will want to stomp on your stones to set them down into the dirt nice and securely.

Ensure that all of your stepping stones are even. Then you will shovel your extra dirt on top of the squares. It doesn’t matter if there’s only a little left.

Spread it out evenly over the squares and sweep it off. This will help fill in any gaps or cracks in the squares. Voila! This is one of the easiest ways to learn how to build a patio ever.
