Has anyone used scraps of composite or treated lumber to assemble a patio?
Rather than put the leftovers from our deck in a landfill, I would like to use them to make a patio under the deck. My plan is to lay them in sand like pavers. If it would be too ugly or unworkable, I’m willing to give up the idea. We have leftovers of various sizes: 5 foot lengths of 6x6 posts that could be edging, four 12 foot stair risers from our contractor’s mistakes, long lengths, as well as smaller rectangles and triangles from both treated lumber and ChoiceDek composite.
