Learn how to build a pillar from patio blocks to use as a plant stand or to incorporate into other outdoor projects.
Use this checklist when you go to the store and purchase your items.
Dig a 24-inch-by-24-inch hole 6 inches deep. The first course is buried in order to provide greater stability. You could also sit the blocks directly on the patio. With this option, skip Step 2.
Once the hole is dug and level, pour in paver base about 3 inches deep, and tamp until well compacted. Use remaining base to level the first course, and fill in around the buried course.
Lay the first course, leveling as each stone is placed.
Rotate the pattern 90 degrees for each course. Use landscape adhesive on each course if desired. Check for level after each course.
