Stake out & remove sodBegin by staking out patio area, making sure area is 6" larger on all sides than actual finished size. Remove sod. Lay landscape fabric and create a base by adding 4" of paver base and compact. This will add durability and stability.
Screed SandLay a 1" diameter pipe on base. Pour 1" of sand over compacted base. Screed the sand by dragging a 2"x4" board over pipe.
Lay out patio blocksBegin laying the patio blocks in the corner. A paver edger is recommended. Some of the blocks may require cutting and can be cut using a circular saw with a masonry blade.
Spread sand into jointsFill joints by sweeping additional play sand over the patio. Sweep remaining sand from the top of your project. You can substitute paver locking sand in place of play sand to inhibit weed growth.
