Welcome to Part Two of my DIY Patio series. The idea of making a patio seems hard, but I promise you it’s actually relatively simple to DIY yourself. I recently revealed our DIY Front porch we created out of pavers and pea gravel, you can see how our simple DIY porch tuaparned out here. Today I’m going to share how to DIY a Concrete Paver + Pea Gravel Patio
When I was researching how to do concrete patio installation, I had a hard time finding ideas that were polished-looking along with being affordable. My budget was tight! I considered contacting the professionals, but I wanted to save some money! Then I stumbled across this idea and I immediately went after it. After finishing our patio, I feel like this is the easiest DIY paver patio idea you can create yourself with ease.
Honestly, I am so happy with how my DIY patio turned out. Of course, if you would like to emulate a similar style outside your home, there is no shame in reaching out to a team of paving and driveway experts to take care of the job for you. After all, not everyone has enough time to design and install a patio like this one and landscaping is not easy! Some things are definitely best left to the experts, so if you are not as DIY savvy as me, do feel free to contact a paving company for some advice about transforming your space.
The materials for this project other than the wheelbarrow, and shovels I used are really simple.
- Metal Rake
- Metal Stakes
- Landscape String
- Scrap piece of 2 x 4
- Angle Grinder
- Concrete Blade
