Small Paver Patio Entryway - Project Summary

November 14, 2017

Project Description:

Homeowner wanted    to install a decorative paver patio in their entry to replace the existing wood steps and decking. They also requested a raised planter.   We removed the decking and installed a 3-piece random paver pattern with a center circle to dress up the small patio space. The raised planter was   constructed out of a Versalok charcoal blend, and the door step was completed with block, cap, and pavers.   How To Maximize a Small Patio
