Here is my before and after of my newly finished patio

Had requested input for my patio (using the before picture); finished installing pavers, build a sitting wall and applied a sealer. Lot of heavy lifting and grunt work, but seems well worth the effort. Comments welcome. I used Pavestone Platinum pavers and Pavestone wall and cap.

Pretty! Like the feel of the plants and stones and the colors of the deck and pavers.

Wow you truly seems to have worked well towards giving the best possible look to the patio. But i believe you should have planted more flowery plants to give the extra zeal.

I have a lot of plants/flowers on the other side of the yard- this is just the view of one side from the deck. Will try and post a pix of the view from the new patio to the other side.

did a lot of the work myself and hired some help for the heavy lifting- so saved the installation cost, which is about 60% of the total cost of a typical installation. becuase i did it myself, it meant only w/ends, and that took a lot longer. spent a lot of time researching and reading....

they have recently come out with 'paver panels', sold @ Lowes, HD, and also the paver suppliers; these are meant to replace almost 4-5 inches of gravel. The panels are not cheap, but they will save a lot of labor (especially if your porch is not easily accessible for a bobcat). Just type in 'paver panel', 'brock', in google and you will get a bunch of hits. Not sure how good these are (I am about to try them myself), but if you use these, your work becomes a lot easier. Call a few paver suppliers for price, add the cost of the panels and a few hunderd $$ more for labor and you will have a better idea.

Great design, very welcoming and relaxing. It doesn't look like 'omg what a lot of work to keep it up' - a great use of shrubs and small trees.
