Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Homeowners are spending more time and money than ever creating and sprucing up living spaces outside the house. It’s no surprise that the patio is riding this trend. Now that DIYers have greater access to the tools, techniques, and materials required to build great patios and walkways, they’re going all out. And this newest offering from the successful “Build Like a Pro” series is the best guide they can ask for. It’s all in here – from base construction techniques to surface materials. A reader can choose to complete the six projects in this book exactly as presented or mix and match techniques to create a truly custom project. Complete in-depth information, step-by-step instructions, focused sidebars, and tips add up to a professional patio or walkway project that homeowners will enjoy for years to come.

Synopsis:

An attractive walkway or terrace dramatically improves a home's curb appeal and livability. In many older homes, walkways and terraces need updating or replacement, and new homes are often sold without these enhancements. The projects illustrated in Patios and Walkways, from rustic stone paths to handsome new patios, can be completed within 1-3 days and are explained step-by-step, allowing even first-time masons to achieve professional results. The book helps homeowners select from the wide variety of outdoor materials and tools available at home stores and landscape centers.
