Start by measuring the length and width and multiplying those two numbers together. Calculate how many **pavers are needed** for your patio project by entering the patio dimensions and the pavement size. Estimate the cost of your project by entering a price per paver below. Determining the size of your home's outdoor patio can often be complicated.

Many homeowners often end up with a patio that's too big or too small. The proper size and location of an outdoor patio are the most challenging aspects of landscape design. To find out what type of patio best suits your needs, you need to determine which one will be the most used and how much space you have to work. In large backyards, an open outdoor living area may be ideal.

If you have a small patio or side patio, a bistro patio may be your best option. Below are the most common dimensions for a good patio size. Total number of pavers% of 3D pavers per square foot* total project area (rounded up; if you don't get a full number, you may need to round it up and adjust the additional brick around the edges of the project). The trick to calculating the quantities of cobblestone needed for these patterns is to assemble the repeating pattern, estimating the square feet of the pattern itself, and then calculating how many repetitive patterns are needed.

Calculate how much sand you'll need for a 12×12 paved patio, which involves finding the surface area of the pavement, the volume of sand, and then establishing how many cubic feet or cubic yards or bags of sand are needed to cover the area in a 1-inch thick layer. To find the square footage of a house, you'll first need to have a way to measure the size of each room in your house. Next, John must calculate the area covered by a single patio paver and the number of pavers per square foot. The size of your balcony or terrace is not included in the square footage of a condo, since it doesn't count as living space.

With all these values ready, the calculator will show you how many bricks are needed to cover one square foot, as well as the total number of patio pavers you'll need for your project. For a 12×12 or 144-square-foot patio base, you'll need 12 cubic feet, 0.45 cubic yards, or 24 50-pound bags of paving sand with a recommended depth of 1 inch. To make a 12×12 or 144-square-foot patio base, you'll need 12 cubic feet, 0.45 cubic yards, or 24 50-pound bags of paving sand with a recommended depth of 1 inch. Once you know the square footage of the project, it's time to learn more about the cost of materials you might be working with.

To calculate the square footage of a rectangular or square room, you'll need to know the length and width of the room. Once you've found the square footage of both the project and the paver, determining the number of pavers needed is as simple as dividing the square feet of the patio by the square feet of the paver. Convert cubic feet into sandbags for small-volume projects, divide the value of cubic feet by 0.5 to turn it into sandbags. You might even need to know the square footage outside your house if you want to install pavers or build a terrace.

To make a 10×10 or 100 square foot patio base, you'll need 8.33 cubic feet, 0.31 cubic yards, or 17 50-pound bags of paving sand with a recommended depth of 1 inch. That means you need one paver per square foot, which makes sense since a 12″ x 12″ paver measures 1 square foot.
