So, I thought a list of what was done and what was needed to be done was in order.
- Plan patio
- Demo exisiting porch
- Level, lay class 5, compact, level
- Lay and screed sand
- Place pavers
- Compact pavers, add polymeric sand, compact again
- Purchase and build patio furniture
- Purchase plants and plan landscaping
- Purchase privacy arbor
- Plant plants, lay edging, cover with mulch
- Install privacy arbor
- Install new stairs
- Install new light fixture
- Seal pavers
I still am thinking about some kind of outdoor lighting, maybe some more small solar lights, just to make it pretty around the new bushes and flowers. Also maybe a deck box that can do some storage (and also a place to attach a bottle opener that would sit above a pail).
