You will need:
Preparing the area before you lay cast concrete pavers
Mark the perimeter of the patio area with marking paint. Drive wooden stakes into the ground just outside of the perimeter markings and attach mason line.
If you are building a patio, start from the house and work outward. This will help water drainage as you want the pavers to slope away from the house.
When digging, keep in mind you are including 4 inches of paver base and 1 inch of paver sand before adding the paver stones. This means you have to ensure you area is the height of your paver stone plus an additional 5 inches.
How to place cast concrete pavers
It is vital to start at a corner when placing cast concrete pavers and work in an outward manner. Place stones straight down on the sand to keep them fitted snuggly. Do not drag pavers across the sand and never stomp a paver in place.
Once all pavers have been placed, secure the cladding stones along the exposed paver edges using landscape nails.
To finish your patio, spread a thin layer of paver sand over the entire area, sweep the sand across the area lightly to fill the gaps and then run the plate compactor across the patio surface. Repeat this process once more.
