Default My new paver sidewalk

Well, I worked like a dog for 13 hours straight this past sunday, and installed our new paver sidewalk. I had a friend over to help me, a really good friend to stick with it for 13 hours , but we got it done.

Here is the before shots, yes the grass needed to be cut

96 (50 pound) bags of paver base Next time I will get a scoop of crushed limestone, much cheaper and would be easier than this, holy smokes.

The base all spread out 3 inches thick and compacted.

Then we had to screed an inch of sand over the base, to set the pavers on, which ended up being about 50 (50 pound) bags of sand. Again, next time I will get a scoop from somewhere, would be much better that way.

Time to lay the pavers down...

Roughly 650 pavers later, the finished product, and now happy wife

Came back later to sweep sand between the paver joints, really adds a nice finished look to it.

First time I have ever attempted this, but I think it turned out pretty good.

Hey that looks fantastic. Way to go, good job. That looks like the same colour stone that I have on my patio. That's a big job. No easy task. You must have been pretty sore after that!

Thanks!

Yeah, you could say that I was a little sore. I felt like I just went through boot camp or something.
