After determining the area and stones for the patio, prep the base with a layer of compacted gravel about 3 to 4 inches thick. Cover the base with a layer of coarse sand. This allows water to drain properly.
With the groundwork laid, begin placing the patio stones, beginning with the perimeter and working inward. Hit stones with a rubber mallet to secure them in place. Check with a level after each stone is firmly in place. Keep the size of the joints uniform for a clean look. Use a chipping hammer to shape stones for consistency.
