Paver Patio Makeover

June 30, 2017

Project Description:

Installed a paver patio on top of an existing concrete slab to give an aesthetic makeover without completely tearing up the existing landscape. The patio material used was a Silvercreek tile in a Fon du Lac color. Before laying the pavers, the patio needed to be cleaned and prepped so the surface was smooth and durable.  A seat wall was also installed along the edge of the patio with collumns and outdoor lighting.
