Hey all, my bid was accepted on a home. The first thing I’m going to have to do is redo the walkway from at least the front door to the garage since it is in really bad hape and some of the slate steps are loose and will give way to my first lawsuit as a homeoner when someone falls off htem!

Anyway, from what I have read, pavers are a good do it yourself project. From the books and videos I’ve watched it seems to be straightforward and the only real problem I forsee is with dealing with the steps. I cannot find any videos that show how steps are made with pavers. Do you have to use cement or some other adhesive that you normally wouldn’t use? Or do the steps just get reinforced with other bricks?

A stone paver step can finish off any patio and provide a solid safe step out of a patio door. But before you turn around and pay a professional to do it, by just following a few easy steps you can have the finished look you are after. In less than a weekend you can install a paver step of your choice.
