How to Build a Patio Using Stone Patio Kits in Massachusetts

J&J Materials > Hardscape Projects > How to Build a Patio Using Stone Patio Kits in Massachusetts

how-to-build-patioBefore you can build any type of outdoor living space in Scituate, Massachusetts or anywhere else, it all needs to start with the flooring. Whether you choose to use natural stone materials, brick or concrete pavers, learning how to build a patio if you have never done so before can be challenging if you have no experience. Fortunately, you don’t have to spend a lot of time researching or taking a home improvement course on how to build a patio, thanks to the stone patio kits available through J&J Materials.

Our team has done the work to design a patio pattern array for you to choose from and will supply all of the necessary materials required to create flooring for your outdoor living space. We like to call it patio-on-a-pallet and it is a popular best-seller with our customers – homeowners from Scituate to Westport, Fall River to Pawtucket – these stone patio kits make it easy for anyone to build a 10×10 or 12×12 natural stone paver patio in a weekend.

Step One – Decide Where You Want to Build Your Outdoor Living Space
Before you can even choose a design for a patio pattern, you need to decide where you will build your stone patio kits. The most common spot is right next to the back door for easy access for backyard barbecues or entertaining. However, many homeowners are now building multiple outdoor living space areas on their properties, including a separate outdoor kitchen, outdoor living area and other gathering spots to maximize the use of their backyard space. All you need is enough room to build your 10×10 or 12×12 stone patio kits, along with any type of border, trim or edging that you plan to include.

Step Two – Mark the Area
The next step is to mark off the area where you will build and design a patio pattern. Special landscape marking paint, measuring tape or sticks and string are a great way to mark the area. Having it visually marked off before you build your stone patio kits will also help you make sure that you have chosen the right spot for the project.

Step Three – Choose the Type of Material
The stone patio kits available through J&J Materials exclusively use Rivenstone pavers in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors that are used to design a patio pattern that can be easily assembled and installed by our customers. Choose from a variety of Rivenstone pavers, which are available in blue, blue variegated and tan variegated.

Step Four – Choose a Pattern
Our team will design a patio pattern based on the type of materials that are available and the popular trends or styles that are being used currently for people who want to learn how to build a patio in their own backyard. Choosing the pattern can be fairly easy once you take a look at what is available.

Here is a list of some of the most popular patterns available:

  • Dutch Style (10×10 and 12×12 designs)
  • Circle Patio (10×10 only)
  • Basket Weave (10×10 and 12×12 designs)
  • Random (10×10 and 12×12 designs)

Visit the J&J Materials website to take a look at the pattern diagrams available or stop by one of our locations to take a look at the materials used in our stone patio kits. You can even purchase the materials by themselves and design a patio pattern of your own.

Step Five – Prepare the Area for Installation
Make sure to follow the directions that come with our popular stone patio kits to make sure that you properly install your new outdoor living space in Scituate, Massachusetts or anywhere else in the South Coast region. Learning how to build a patio is not difficult, especially if you learn how to follow directions and choose or design a patio pattern that is not too complex.
