These instructions will show you how to build paver stairs for your home. The materials needed include paver blocks, gravel and riser stones.
Step 1: First, you will need to measure and pour the foundation of the steps.
The first step is to measure and pour the foundation of your steps. You will need to determine how wide, long, and deep you want them to be. If you are building just one small set of stairs, then you are probably fine with measuring those three dimensions by hand. However if you are planning on building multiple sets or installing them in an existing garden area where there is already a lot of other stone work being done around it (such as pathways), then taking measurements with a tape measure may not be enough accuracy for you. In this case I would recommend using a laser leveler which can accurately measure angles from any plane surface like concrete or wood floors without needing any protrusions like wall corners etcetera holding up against each other so that your measurements stay accurate throughout construction process without having any chance for human error going wrong at all.”
Step 2: Next, you will need to lay the pavers while leaving room between each block for expansion.
Next, you will need to lay the pavers while leaving room between each block for expansion. Be sure to leave a little over an inch between each paver to allow for any movement that may occur over time. Leave the same amount on either side of the stairs (in case they expand in one direction or another). If you forget this step and discover too late that your pavers won’t fit together, it can be difficult to correct without damaging them.
Step 3: After that, you will need to add gravel and riser stones around the perimeter.
After that, you will need to add gravel and riser stones around the perimeter. The gravel should be about 1 inch deep, while the riser stones should be about 1 inch wide and 1 inch deep.
Step 4: Then, you will need to fill the gaps with sand.
Next, you will need to fill the gaps with sand. You can do this by sweeping it in or with a vibrating plate compactor.
You will then need to activate the polymer with water from a hose and work it into the gaps.
Step 5: You will then use a polymeric sand to fill in the seams of between each paver. You can use a broom or vibrating plate compactor to work the polymer into them.
You can now use a polymeric sand to fill in the gaps between each paver. You can use a broom or vibrating plate compactor to work the polymer into them. If you don’t have access to a vibrating plate compactor, you can also do it by hand, but it will take much longer.
Step 6: Take a hose and run water over the polymers until they have been fully activated. This is a crucial step because it helps in holding all of the blocks together.
Step 6: Take a hose and run water over the polymers until they have been fully activated. This is a crucial step because it helps in holding all of the blocks together. Polymers are used to hold the pavers together, but they have to be activated by water before they can do their job properly. The best way to activate these polymers is by soaking them with water. This will ensure that any gaps between the pavers get sealed up and help protect your stairs from cracks or shifting over time.
Polymers play an important role in paving stone steps as well because they help prevent expansion and contraction that can happen when you install concrete or pavers on sloped areas near bodies of water (like lakes). Water drainage is also another benefit; if your paver stones don’t drain properly, then rainwater could pool up on top of them instead of draining away naturally into an underground drainage system like it should
Step 7: Finally, you are ready to create your personal design! Use your imagination and get creative! If you want to add more security, place some gravel or pebbles within each block for extra traction when walking on these steps.

Follow these steps and create something beautiful!
- Once you have the foundation of your house in place, it’s time to start building the stairs. Your first step is to lay out each piece of pavers by hand and make sure that they line up perfectly with one another. This step can be a little tedious, but it will save you lots of time later on in the project if everything lines up correctly from the beginning.
- Now that all your pavers are laid out properly, it’s time for some creativity! You can create any shape or design that fits your style by using different sizes and colors of pavers as well as varying patterns or designs within each piece itself (see example). Don’t forget about adding some plants around them for extra decoration!
- When you’re happy with how everything looks at this point, it’s time to get crafty with some cement (or other material) so that these beautiful stones stay put forevermore!
Congratulations! You’ve just created your very own paver stairs. We hope that this guide was helpful and that you found it easy to follow along. If you have any questions, feel free to leave us a comment below. Enjoy
