Brand New Patio for Half the Cost of a Contractor

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[I have done a lot of work to my own house and yard, and I've watched a lot of my friends do their own work and contract out work. I can tell you that doing it yourself -- while hard -- will save you ridiculous amounts of money. I love the fact that Suzanne also reused a ton of materials and plants from other projects -- check out her gorgeous photos and learn how she did it. -Rita]

DIY Patio Makeover

$2016.26 for the patio itself, including all the supplies, tools, stone, sand, gravel and plate compactor rental. (Not included: lots of pizza for the workers).

$1841.77 for EVERYTHING else, from the furniture and pillows down to the candles and plants.

Grand total: $3858.03.
