We blocked off the corners so I could make a flower garden. (above)
How we did it!
First we measured and staked out the area where we wanted to make the patio. Then we figured out how many paver stones we needed. (We bought ours at Menard's). Next we pulled up the grass and dug up the dirt about a foot in the whole area. (You need it this deep because you need to also have room for gravel, limestone, and sand to make sure the patio is level).
It rained all weekend so we had a little delay!
After the dirt is removed and it was about 12in. deep, we put about 4in of coarse gravel down and then 4 in. of limestone (chips and dust) on top of the gravel. We got this at a local home and garden store. We made lots of trips with our pick up truck!
Next, we covered the area with landscaping fabric to prevent weeds from growing. Then we put 1- 2 in. of WET sand down. You MUST make sure it is level. If you don't your patio will be uneven and after all that hard work you DO NOT want that to happen! My husband used the technique below by doing small sections at a time. You can use 2x4's like the picture below. Then when you remove them you just fill in the gaps with more sand and smooth it. Almost Done!
One of the corner flower gardens
Last step was to create our seating wall. We used adhesive to glue the seating stones and corner bricks together.
We finished off by putting flat stones on top, I forgot to take a picture, but you can see it in this picture below.

We have our small patio set on the new patio, but we hope to get a bigger set at the end of the season when they go on sale.
More plants and vegetables we need to plant. Some of the veggies we planted aren't doing well.
The moose are going in the other flower garden.
