Building brick or stone walkways or patios is a labor intensive task. You can save a nice amount by doing this work yourself. You will not save on the materials, but you will save significantly on labor. The job just requires patience, a level, some sand or mortar, and time. To learn how to install your own walkway or patio, just visit a home remodeling website, pick up a book for do-it-yourselfers, or take a class at a home improvement store. This is also a great way to get a distinctive result because you probably don’t want to pay someone to spend additional time creating designs with the stone or brick. And it’s a really fun project.
