It's done! The 550 brick patio is done!
Here is the Patio Creation in photos:
Before - grass, grass, grass:
The hubs raking the sand, making his own zen space:
Then we leveled it out to make everything even:
The outside edges are done!
Start of the herringbone pattern:
Many hours later and we find the end of the herringbone pattern! I'm hammering in the last paver:
Chris made his own tamper to tamp down the bricks:
Almost done, we sweep paver sand between the bricks...
And mist the bricks for the paver sand to set them:
All done! I love the way it looks and Sammi has found a new spot to lay in the sun.
