Over Labor Day weekend, I decided to dig up half of my grass and replace it with pavers and rocks. It took about 10 hours, so I’ve split the video into two. One for the left side and one on the right. The steps are relatively simple, but make sure you’re willing to really work hard if you’re going to do it. Or if you can manage a strong guy helping out – I’d choose that option. However, I did this by myself but it was a bit of a challenge to get all the rocks and pavers in my yard without killing my back.
What you need to do it yourself:
- Soil to help with leveling and filling in large holes.
- Weed Blocking Mesh
- Paver Sand to help stabilize the pavers and add additional leveling on top of the mesh.
- Pavers and / or Rocks. I chose a Parisian Cobble Brick Faced Stepping Stone in a light beige to match a stone end-table I own and White Marble Chips with a Pea Pebble base so I could use less white rocks.
- Caps for your sprinklers (if you have them).
