How to Build a Patio: Part Three
This week's video on How to Build a Patio concludes with cutting pavers, installing edging, and compacting and adding joint sand. The Dwight Derby House patio is complete and the final product looks fantastic. Below the video are pictures of the last phase of the project. You can check out part one and part two in the series also.
