We have had a project lined up to extend the patio in our backyard. We were thinking of just having it done with concrete, which is what our existing patio is made of.
After looking at different contractors for the job, it was way more expensive than we had hoped. Now, we are thinking of a do-it-yourself project using pavers. I installed a natural stone flower bed border around the front and side of our house and it turned out really well.
This project would be a little more involved in some ways, but easier in others.

Maybe I’ll get some before and after pictures out here. 🙂
