Paver stone patio

Postby manicmonday18 on Thu May 02, 2013 12:45 pm

Does anyone have any recommendations for someone who installs paver stone patios? I'm in the North Side and looking for someone to install an approximately 10 x 16 foot patio with a small walkway and a firepit with optional built in seating. Im looking to get some sort of plan/quote and then decide if I want to do it this year or next. Any help from someone who has received good work would be appreciated.

The option of doing it myself is still being pondered...but honestly I'd rather just pay someone else to do it if the quality is going to be superior (which I assume it would be). If the cost ends up being insane, I'm far too cheap to not do it myself however.

Technically, its very simple to install a paveror brick patio. However, its a ton of physical labor. Moving your material to location, and digging out the area is tough. If you dont mind the dirty work, its definitly a diy project.

We used Tuma's landscaping in Beaver County 2 years ago for this same project. Looks fantastic. I don't know if they work on the North Side or not.

IIRC cost was about $2k.

Yeah, he got someone with a skidloader to "dig" it out (basically had to go down about 2-3 inches) and that was only because it was where an above ground pool was, so the dirt was literally like concrete. Then its just some sand, pea gravel base, and getting everything level.
