Day 3: Circular Patio

After excavation, the crew installs a layer of filter fabric to prevent base materials from mixing with the soil. On top goes angular stone, compacted with a vibratory compactor. A layer of sand provides an even setting bed for the pavers.

We’re using Brussels tumbled pavers from Unlock, which come in wedge-shaped pieces to form circles and fan designs with minimal cutting. The crew lays out pavers and granite cobblestone accents, and checks the level to ensure that it will shed water.

When the patio is complete, the crew fills joints with a polymeric sand to lock pavers into place and inhibit weeds.
