Backyard Makeover – The courtyards are living spaces outdoors with features not available in interiors, including pure sunlight, fresh air, blue skies and green grass. A wide range of flooring, furniture and decorative accessories are available to design the ideal patio. A poured concrete patio is only one option among many, including brick paves, ceramic tile and loose gravel. Filling loose patio is easy to install in a weekend and is an attractive setting for a campfire in your backyard.
- Hit the 1-inch (2.5 cm) pipe in the center of the area with the Mace and the string to backyard makeover it. It measured 10 feet (3 m) cord for a patio of 20 feet (6 m) in diameter and at paint can spray at the end of the string. Walking in a circle around the pipe with extended thread, spray the ground to mark the outline of the courtyard.
- Removes the lawn of the circular area with the shovel and dig the soil to a depth of 4 inches (10 cm).
- Placed one inch (2.5 cm) of gravel, smooth with a metal rake, and press it firmly with the compactor.
- Use the level to make sure that the site is level before applying the loose fill. If it is not level, smooth gravel a little more and re-check the level backyard makeover then Pat it once again.
