Steve & Penni's Patio
This patio was a grassy area in the back yard. We dug out the grass and 6" of soil. We layed in 4" of DG (decomposed granite) and then 2" of sand. We then circled the 4 trees with slump stone and filled them in with top soil. The area was covered by 3 sprinklers, One of which was capped and the other two were connected to drip irrigation hose (buried in the sand) to feed the tree wells. We laid conduit & sweeps for power to the BBQ & Patio area. On top of the sand we layed 12" stepping stones that appear to be old brick. We then built forms, mixed and poured concrete for walkways, borders & a base for the BBQ. We then built the BBQ. Next we built the awning over the BBQ so we could still BBQ in bad weather.
