Once you have approval, you are ready to begin installing your new brick Backyard paver walkway.
Place the perimeter of your walkway with a garden hose, rope or marking paint. This gives an idea of what your gateway will look like before you start digging. When you are satisfied with the design, you can go ahead. Measure the width and length of the area that were mentioned. Multiply the two together to get the square footage. For example, if your measurements add 2 feet by 50 feet, its square footage is 100 square feet. If you are using 1 m cobblestones, divide the square footage by 1. This means you need 100 Backyard paver. Add a 5 percent that total to ensure you have additional blocks if necessary.
