View Full Version : One of our patio installs

First time posting pictures not to sure if its going to work but here they are! The customer wanted this patio to be larger, but there were sewage lines that run right along the edge of the patio which were not as deep as expected. Overall it turned out well and the customer was very happy!

Here are a few more....

The concrete pad could not be removed since it was part of the sun room.

Nice work. Will the space between the door and the patio hold water and alow it to seep in?

Thank you, water will seep into there. It is a hot tub room so there are actually drains in the concrete floor.

Where is the border? Why did you use pavers for the step instead of bullnose?

Looks pretty good, what I'm concerned about is the step. Pavers shouldn't be used for the tread since the side isn't a finished edge. Like NH said, a bullnose would be a better choice.

I would say overall it looks nice from the pictures. I agre with Plat. about the steps, bullnose would of looked killer on that job. Man must be a long chore digging with that toothed bucket. Have you ever tried using an excavator instead of a TLB.

What kind of price are you guys getting a square foot? I just did a DIY show and the cobble system guy said in florida they get materials and labor for $3-4 per sqft. I normally get $10-15 per sqft.

The digging goes pretty quick with that Kubota I usually use the front bucket to dig out the main areas and the backhoe to get into tighter spots, I would love to get a mini exc soon went out the other day and checked some out.

The bullnose would of been the way to go I dont know why we didn't do that.

Price per sq ft we usually get anywhere from 14$-25$

This job really did turn out great. We should have done the bull nose, the customer was on a tight budget tho. He received an excellent patio for the price that he paid!
