    I am bidding on a large job and an EP Henry Raised Patio is one piece. I know it is hard to give a price without seeing the property. The ground is almost a flat grade and the raised patio will be 15x30 (15 out from the house and over 30 feet.) There will be 3 steps from the sliding glass door and two pillars in the center with 2 steps down. I am using 3 inch Coventry for the pillars with lights.

    I will be using 6 inch Coventry for the 12 inch raise and Coventry pavers for the pavers.

    Assuming a flat grade, what would be your ballpark price?

    I appreciate any feedback.

    Thank you.

    Why don't you contact your EP Henry sales or Conserv representative. They will be very happy to help you with pricing, materials and construction. They have a very helpful staff and are happy to assist anyone that is willing to use their product. You must first know what your overhead, skills and abilities and your intended profit margin will be to come up with the correct pricing for your business and a fair price for your client.

    Thank you for the information. I put together a good formula this past weekend. I will be more efficient in giving estimates.

    That's the best thing to do. No one knows your business like you. Don't hesitate to contact a Conserv rep. They are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. What part of NJ are you in?

    Hey I am bidding on a natural stone project. It is my first raised patio. What do you guys use for fillers?

    What should I use to raise the level of the ground to 4'5"?

    3/4" clean stone to approx 9" under top of pavers. This will give you the 6" for your base. If you want more base then put less 3/4" clean. Compact the 3/4" clean every 4 to 6 inches depending on size of compactor. Use gep textile between soil and 3/4" clean stone and between the 3/4" and the stone you are using for your base.
