Using Pavers to Build a Backyard Patio and Fire Pit

More each day, homeowners are making upgrades to their backyards to maximize the advantages of their outdoor living spaces. If you’re planning to revamp your lawn and garden this season to add more function for your family to enjoy, then watch this video to see how you can use pavers from your local hardware store in San Jose to build a backyard patio and fire pit.

First, the patio’s base level can be made using a mixture of stone and sand, and it should be completely level before you begin adding any pavers. Also, consider creating a small slope, which can help water drain outward. Then, make an outline of the patio’s area. Next, beginning at the center, place the middle stone and then begin adding each ring as you move outward.
