The patio is gorgeous. Would you be OK with sharing where you got the stones (pavers?) from?

Thanks! I saw some Calstone Quarrystone that looked similar. I'm an hour outside Sacramento so maybe I can track it down.

Yep - the Calstone does have a similar appearance - Pros: since it is a manufactured product it is easier to install and provides a more uniform surface. Cons: The look is not quite the same as working with natural stone. Midvalley Rock in Sacramento has the natural stone I used but calls it something different. Another option that may provide the best of both worlds is using Antique Vanilla slate cut in squares by SUI and available at Silverado. These pieces can be ordered thick enough to install on a sand bed without mortar.

What is the base for the pavers?

This patio is elevated from the lawn area so I had the opportunity to use broken concrete from the front driveway as a base avoiding the need for offhaul and disposal. The concrete was supplemented with loose gravel/road base to fill in the empty spaces and then compacted with a vibraplate. One to two inches of masonry sand was then applied to allow for proper leveling of the stones. The finished patio was then compacted with the vibraplate. Polymeric sand was installed as easy but permanent grout joints.
