As many of your know, we purchased our first home this past year. We've been in it for about 8 months now. It's definitely a project house, and our first project was the kitchen. Now that we have only two cosmetic things to finish up in the kitchen, and now that it's Spring, we've been thinking of making some little improvements to our outdoor space. We have a wonderfully large back yard, but no designated patio space, and our front yard is in desperate need of a couple of trees. But, I've been doing a bit of homework on how to create a patio space ourselves, and on the cheap. I found these two videos from Lowes to be extremely helpful in knowing what would be involved and how to do it. Enjoy!
