    Stop shouting.

  2. Willy Diesel on March 29, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Great Video. But only 4 inches for a patio? And 6 inch for a Driveway? My Driveways had 12"

  3. Armando Sanchez on March 29, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Few questions, how do we determine the depths? The paver depth plus the one inch sand plus the 6 inch sub base? Also how do we calculate the slope for drainage correctly and how is that done? And how would I install drainage in a project like that? Lastly how do we get and keep the lines in the pavers straight on lager projects? Thanks for you help?

    What’s the difference between sand and mortaring cost wise ?

  5. Colleen Bokoski on March 29, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    I would like to know what you do when a Downspout, comes down to where you are putting the pavers, and the best way to Get the right slope on paver patio

    $3700 in materials and quote the customer between 12-15k? That’s about 400% markup? For 16×16, 2x 12ft seats, and 3 columns. Seems way over priced.

  7. Ramapo River on March 29, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    $8,000 for sod

    I cant believe that required a damn tractor lol. come on! Don’t be lazy

    Now that baby fox is way too cute man I don’t to work now

  11. Salvador R on March 29, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    I just started a landscaping business what are the current prices for paver patios and versa-lok retaining wall per sqf ??? I know it varying by state by just need an idea thanks

  12. C.R.E.A.M. on March 29, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    I wish someone would do a video on how to measure and cut the small pieces of paver to finish off the project. Like around the border and fire pit. This to me seems the hardest most technical part and I can’t find an example of how it’s done anywhere.

  13. Josh G. on March 29, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    How (when/what stage) do you incorporate the runoff (1” every 8ft)? I don’t understand the purpose of the string line and how that plays into your digging.

  14. Blue city lawncare&landscape Barron on March 29, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    How much should I charge to lay 600sqf

  15. Meredith McDaniel on March 29, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Can you refer a team that could come install this back patio (possibly on a smaller scale) and an addition to a drive way in the same manner this was done but with different pavers for the drive way, in Augusta GA?

  16. sean cov on March 29, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    i respect the suddle flex with the old school Supergoose

  17. Jay Balukas on March 29, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Why plastic pvc pipe. Why a wood 2 by 4. Why Belgard. Techo block pavers are all the same size.

  18. Mike Knoeber on March 29, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Question, this is the second video regarding pavers that i’ve watched and in both at the end it appears as hay or straw is on one or all of the outer egdes… why is that?

  19. Insert Name Here on March 29, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Spikes rust and hold slightly better BUT in the long run, they will rust out of existence and hold will cease to exist. So its actually better to use galvanized metal for this in the long term. The differences are miniscule. Sadly, Americans dont build anything to last anymore. Not alot of people left that value quality and durability

    How do you get a design idea and materials used?

  22. Mike Knoeber on March 29, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    Soo funny, Stanley I see you using the techniques he is teaching you in this video on future videos in 2020…I guess you do learn something new everyday.

  23. Benjamin Chafetz on March 29, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    not gonna lie… you had me at the baby fox!

  24. Nathan Jones on March 29, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Hi Stanley, I really appreciate your great videos! I’m learning so much from you! Do you have any advice on how to get the right kind of crushed rock for a patio base? It seems like the lingo used to describe it can vary quite a bit depending on who you’re talking to. I want to make sure I get the right stuff, but am having a hard time finding a tutorial that says exactly what will and won’t work.

  25. allen sanchez on March 29, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Aye that pallet says Jonesboro Ga I lived there

  26. Victor Vek on March 29, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Stop screaming. Also, polymeric sand makes a f’n mess if you’re dealing with heaving. 2 years later, you’re spending the whole summer fixing every joint. 🙁

  27. Blue Blue on March 29, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Mexicans build it I’ll last forever

  28. Z TV on March 29, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Very informative, thank you and wish me luck.

    Done by hand tools and dig out by hand is true king !!!!!!!!

  31. makemeasandwitch1231 on March 29, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Stop with your stupid commentary and show us the actual build.
    It maybe fun to listen to you but fun doesn’t make construction. I came to the video to learn how to construct but your keep adding your dumb commentary and jokes.

    Super glad I found this channel. Hysterical but lessons still come through. Sometimes over Zane shows like bill Nye or Schoolhouse rock(remember and love those?) trouble is, we all know the song but can’t use conjunctions properly to save our lives. Don’t underestimate the art in this production.

  42. Sifu 70 on March 30, 2021 at 12:04 am

    You need to be serious, stop trying to be funny. Are you showing people how to be comedians.

  43. Israel N on March 30, 2021 at 12:05 am

    How is a $3k patio worth $15k?

  44. A B on March 30, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Where is the key to forming the slope? With the gravel? I know the sand needs to be at an inch, but how do I get the slope effect to water goes away from my home and into the grass?

  45. Fernando Mancilla on March 30, 2021 at 12:07 am

    I wonder if that migo really names JOSE or he just came up with it 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    I did the same with Stodoys plans 🙂

  49. Art Guti on March 30, 2021 at 12:12 am

    I’m currently working on doing my own paver patio (all by myself). I’ve already dug out the existing dirt. I’m working on laying some 4" drain pipe…then I’m going to run some electrical and 3/4 sprinkler pvc while everything is dug out. I’m not going to be using the retainer edging…but I’m going to pour a 6" wide retainer wall to keep everything locked in.

  50. Rick Rogers on March 30, 2021 at 12:14 am

    Like the vids, what is the bramd name of the clip-on system used for the patio wall seats ?
