Recycled Concrete Patio

Ever wanted a unique durable DIY patio?  Well my awesome neighbor created a recycled concrete patio using broken up pieces of concrete from another neighbors torn our driveway!

 So here are the pieces that Erik picked out from the torn out driveway.  He laid them out on the grass to make sure they fit together alright and that he had enough pieces for the new space.

Then he tore out the grass for the new patio.

He laid down some landscaping fabric and a layer of yard gravel to set the concrete and began around the edge of the existing rectangular pavers.

Erik continued laying the concrete, working to be sure that each piece was level in the sand and gravel.  This was especially difficult since the concrete was not perfectly equal in thickness.  Then with a push broom he filled the spaces with more gravel and sand to pack it tight.

I think it turned out fantastic!  I love that it is different from the pavers that were already there.  I also think it is amazing that Erik thought to turn this wasted concrete that no one wanted and was on the edge of landing at the local landfill into this long-lasting, concrete paved fire pit area!

So next time you are driving by a house in your neighborhood where they are jack-hammering out old concrete, think about saving and making something awesome like Erik!

  • Kudos! I’m all over repurposing things that would otherwise get thrown out!

  • I made a pathway down the side of our home out of broken concrete. I, too, loved the “studied casual” look that was the result of my hard work.

  • I love this idea. More often than not, concrete can be repaired, recovered or lifted. But when you do have to replace, I love this idea to make lemonade out of lemons!

  • Thank you for sharing this! I’ve been trying to figure out a good way to to create a fire pit patio without buying stone. We have a part of our driveway that needs to be replaced, and this is a great way to reuse the concrete!
