How to Be Your Own Patio Builder

Some homeowners forgo making a patio because they don't have the budget to hire professionals. However, there are tons of things you can do yourself. The Youtube video "How to Build a Patio - An easy Do it Yourself Project" shows everything you should know such as what to buy and what you have to do to become your own patio builder. Let's find out more! The video focuses on making a cutlass paver patio, but you have to remember that it's all about the base, not the bricks you're laying on it.

First, you have to divide the base into three sub-categories. The first one is the sub-base, which is the raw soil. You're going to need to prepare that, set it down, and there are a few things you should know as well. The second sub-category is the imported material, which is used to separate the sub-base from the pavers. The third category is the sand base or screed rail. The sub-base is the most critical part of this project because if you do it correctly, you'll have a patio that will pass the test of time and look the same 20 years down the line. Otherwise, it will fail. You can watch the rest of the video for more details about becoming your own patio builder.
