What is the Average Paver Patio Cost Per Square Foot?

The average cost to have a professional install your paver patio for you lies somewhere between $10 and $30 per square foot.

Many factors impact the cost of installing a paver patio (or any other type of paver design), and the average price per square foot varies widely depending on those details.

For example, if your yard is flat and already laid with grass, you might be able to get away with minimal prep work and materials. If your yard has a slope, is uneven, or has several large trees in it, it will take more time and effort to prepare the area for installation. This increased cost will then be reflected in higher paver costs per square foot.

Common factors that affect paver patio cost:

  • Site conditions
  • Size of paver project
  • Quality of material used
  • Type of edging installed

When choosing paving materials, it’s essential to consider their durability, as well as their appearance. Some paving materials are less expensive than others, but they may not withstand harsh weather conditions or frequent use.

For example, natural stone is highly durable and has a high-end look, but it can cost significantly more than other types of stones.
