Looks great Chiren. What paint did you use on those pavers?

Cheers

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community Jason (@becandjason). It is fabulous to have you join us and many thanks for jumping into the conversation.

 

Let me mention @Chiren_J so they are alerted to your kind feedback and so they can hopefully answer your question.

 

Do you have a paving project you'd like to share with the community? We'd encourage you to let us know if you need any assistance with it or would like to share your results. I trust you'll find loads of inspiration, just like this project, on the site as our creative members are sharing their ideas here every day.

Hey Jason

Thanks, I used Crommelin 8L Clear Satin DiamondCoat Tintable Sealer with Basalt color tint. Link below.

 

Mine was a stencilled concrete btw, not pavers and The stainer seeps into the concrete, unlike paint that sits on the top.

I like so much the project that I will start a similar one . Would you mind sharing the links for the timber used for the planter boxes and the type of palms planted there?

Hi Youlia, 

 

I used H4 treated timber sleepers and posts for the planter boxes frame that stays in contact with garden soil and moisture.

I also used some treated pine decking boards over the sleepers for the dressed look. These were the same boards I used for decking and Later stained the decking boards.

 

The palms are banglow palms, supposed to get tall. Intention was the screen neighbors windows.

 

Good luck with your project!

Re: Backyard patio makeover

This looks amazing.  Nothing like a holiday in your backyard, now that we can't travel much. 

Very useful, my husband is attempting to build our deck, I will definitely show him your post.

Re: Backyard patio makeover

Brilliant! I particularly like the way that those two raised decking sections worked along with the fence and garage wall to create an "entertaining pit" effect.  

I can never show the video to my wife... she already thinks I work too slowly, so to see how rapidly you appeared to work to make this in a few minutes, might make for unrealistic expectations...😊

Impressed by your using all of the materials too. There seemed to be very little wastage.
