How to Design a Circular Brick Patio

Save

When you are designing a circular brick patio you will be adding extra interest to your patio design. However, it can be challenging to design a brick patio that will both look good and be easy to install. From designing, to laying your brick patio there are a few things that will help you to do a great job.

Designing your brick patio

  • Before you begin to think about your brick patio, you will need a flat and level space to lay the patio. Be sure you pick a place that gets plenty of sunlight, or shade, depending on how you would like to use the patio.

  • After you have found a place for your circular patio, you will need to decide if you want the patio to be permanent or more easily moved. Depending on what you want for your patio space, you can lay your brick patio one of two ways. The first is called a flexible pavement. This method is the easiest and quickest method for laying a brick patio. Sand or crushed rocks are the base of the patio and the bricks are placed on top. Sand is then swept between the bricks. On the other hand, if you want a more permanent structure you can use a mortared pavement. The mortared pavement base consists of crushed rocks, covered with a 1/4-inch concrete slab. Bricks are placed on the dry pad and mortar is placed between the bricks. The mortared pavement lasts longer, but is harder to install. Before you can do anything else, you will need to decide which method you want to use.

  • Once you have a space for your circular brick patio, and you know how you want to lay it down, it is time to choose bricks. Remember that reclaimed bricks can be used because you are only going to need one good side on the brick. For a circular brick patio you will also need half bricks in the middle of the patio to help with the tight angles.
