Concrete Patio Pavers Projects For DIY Weekend WarriorsNovember 25th, 2020 | by paver_guys
Our Bay Area concrete patio pavers know there are lots of people who take great pleasure in DIY projects that add to curb appeal. While there are some projects that are best left to the experts, there are others you’ll enjoy working on yourself that add to the pleasure you get from an interlocking concrete paver patio. Here are some tips and ideas you’ll find useful.
Before You Get Started
Be sure your project is one you can handle and complete over a couple of days’ time. Nothing is more frustrating than thinking it’s a small project you can do in a few hours, only to have it end up taking a week!
Have all supplies you may need gathered before the weekend gets here so you’re ready to go.
If you think your project will take a day, double the time. Weather or other unexpected delays could throw off your time line.
Read concrete paver blogs, watch a few online videos or even consider attending a workshop so you have a thorough understanding about pavers and how they’re installed.
Take your time and enjoy the creative process as you go along.
Great DIY Projects to Enhance Your Paver Patio
If you already have an interlocking concrete paver patio, great. If you don’t, you’ll want to have a professional take care of this larger project as there is a lot involved and you want it to be perfect. Here are a few things you can do to enhance your beautiful patio:
Use plants in unique containers to accent your patio. Whether in an old broken clay pot, an old chandelier, a birdcage or even a small wheelbarrow, there are so many things you can use for a distinctive look that really add to the atmosphere of your patio.
Stepping stones in a texture and/or color that complements your patio are ideal for cutting a small path from your patio to another area of the yard; even more charming when it’s flanked by flowers!
A fire pit adds warmth and amps up the appeal of your patio, making it an inviting space on cool evenings with family and friends. This is where you can really put what you’ve learned by watching those videos to use.
Have an old chair, door, or headboard? There are countless things you can use to create unique outdoor seating, and you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you created it yourself. Lots of great ideas can be found on Pinterest.
Now all you have to do is put your creativity and imagination to work to turn your paver patio into a space you’ll truly want to spend all of your free time in!
