Create a haven in your landscape for your family by the fire pit or next to your pond with this curved patio block bench.
Use this checklist when you go to the store and purchase your items.
Ensure you have a solid, level base for your curved bench. If you aren't installing on an existing patio, then you'll need to prepare the base for patio pavers.
Start with the bench portion of this project. Starting from the left-hand side of the bench, lay two Countryside wall blocks front to back. Make sure the left side of each wall block forms a straight line. Then begin to alternate with Olde Manor wall and Countryside wall blocks as shown in the diagram. After you finish the bench portion, lay the first row of the end pillars as shown in the diagram.
Start the second and fourth rows in the center of the previous row. Lay two Olde Manor blocks centered to the Countryside wall block below, and then follow the pattern as shown in the diagram. Before you reach the ends of the second and fourth rows, build the end pillar row.
After you finish the fifth row of the curved bench and end pillars, add another row to each end pillar, alternating the pattern from the previous row. The seventh row on your end pillars is the cap row. Place six Olde Manor blocks side to side and front to back to form the cap.
