Patio – Day 3. The patio will feature a sitting wall along the outside edge which will be approximately 20 inches high. With each level of wall block, Jim and Todd add the gravel backfill behind the wall.
The wall is almost complete except for the caps which will be installed once the patio is finished. A layer of sand is added to the top of the crushed rock and keeping this layer level is extremely important. Todd is using two pieces of conduit to make sure the sand is the same level throughout and it enables the skreeting process to be performed. The actual laying of the patio block is probably the quickest portion to the patio installation. The customer has chosen the Versa-Lok “Harvest” blend patio block which accentuates the color of their home. This outdoor retreat is gradually coming together!
