Would you like to find out about paver patio costs? Here is a design I did for a client. Included is a landing with 3 steps and side planters. There is also an extensive seat wall with end piers.
Take a look at the 3D pictures and then see below for the pricing. You will also see that I itemized the porch and seat wall, so that you will know what they cost individually.
Paver patio with landing, steps, planters and large seat wall.
Porches are needed when the
interior of your house is higher than your ground, unless you create a raised
patio at the same level. This is much more expensive to do because supporting
side walls are needed for the entire patio.
Gray pavers go well with the house.
The large seat wall provides lots of extra seating.
A seat wall is a nice feature, but it does make the project more expensive and can be optional. Some type of landing, however, was needed for this project.
Let’s price the patio with pavers and mosaic block used for all vertical structures. That would be for the planters, step risers, and seat wall.
$15 per square foot for pavers is a good price to go by
The patio is 427 square feet. (The landing area and seat wall are priced separately.)
Total Cost $19,100
1. Remove the seat wall and the cost is $11,700. Wow, what a savings!
2. Use an iron railing on the landing instead of the planters and save some money too.
3. Reduce the size of the patio. Basic furniture would still fit on a small space.
4. Use concrete instead of pavers. Color the concrete for interest and create geometric squares for a nice pattern.

"Susan, what a pleasure it was to work with you. You made me feel like I was your only client - responding late at night and always so quickly! Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant. You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes. Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it!!!"
