This preparatory dialogue should cover such issues as what size and kind of slabs will be used, the exact location of the patio, does the site need levelling, are there drains or trees in the way, and where can a skip be positioned.

This stage of the patio project should include the stripping and disposal of surface debris and any existing paving waste, digging up of topsoil to reach the more stable sub-soil, spreading of a hardcore or sub-base and the subsequent pressing down and levelling of this material, covering using a bedding material for instance sharp sand.

The Laying of the Paving: When the area has all been prepared your patio contractor will begin putting down the patio slabs, exactly how this level proceeds depends upon the materials you've selected, and might be pretty uncomplicated so long as the surface preparation was carried out correctly and the resulting base is sound and flat.
