Prices can range from less than 120 for small portable units to permanently installed natural gas units closer to the 300 range. Look for heater bases with wheels inside and poles with tables attached; you'll use both more than you might think.

The basic supplies needed include the selected pavers, crushed stone, paver base, long 1 inch conduit pipes, leveling board, and edge restraints. Tools needed include a compactor, cutoff saw, shovels, etc. We explain the basic steps, giving some basic knowledge that is useful if selecting a contractor to do the "heavy lifting," so you'll know what questions to ask.
