In this tutorial, we learn how to build a backyard patio. First, determine the location keeping in mind other buildings and landscape features. There should be a retaining wall around the patio so measure out all the different dimensions. Position a cap block at the highest center location. Then, use a level to transfer the patio height over the proposed location. You will then have to figure out how many blocks you need. When you calculate your digging depth, take into account your foundation bed. Make sure to mark off your layout with stakes and strings. Dig a trench and follow your string lines. When you're finished installing the bricks you will have a beautiful patio. This will take a long time so make sure to do your best work and don't rush through!
