Laying a patio out of brick pavers makes a good DIY project, but problems can arise when it comes to locking the pavers into place. Use a polymer-based material, which stays put and flexes rather than cracking.
The joints between patio pavers are usually filled with sand, which has a tendency to wash out of the cracks over time. PowerLoc Jointing Sand from Quikrete is a polymer based product that prevents it from washing out or cracking. Simply pour it out and sweep the jointing sand diagonally into the cracks with a push broom. To lock it in place, mist the surface down with water from a sprayer, going over it three times within an hour, and let dry.
Spending time outdoors in the backyard is a great way to relax. However, a suitable place for the barbecue grill, table, and chairs is a must. Watch this video to find out how to lay a paver patio for your yard.
