Published in the same format as others in the Build Like a Pro® series, this book provides in-depth instruction on several projects, breaking each one down step by step to teach various specific techniques along the way.
It not only provides the information to get you started, covering planning and design, materials, and construction methods, but explains what to do when things go wrong. It offers six sample projects, representing just about any walkway or patio project you are likely to undertake, from installing a formal bluestone walkway to replacing an entrance with a mica schist patio, complete with stone wall and steps. Illustrated with hundreds of photographs and drawings, and sprinkled with valuable trade secrets and pro tips.
