Build a Cobblestone Patio without Concrete

Updated:2014-01-17 10:47:51
Cobblestones are an attractive way to dress up several different features, from driveways to patios and walkways. This material has been used for thousands of years in civilizations all over the world. Cobblestones can be installed a couple different ways, and installation without the use of concrete is common and cleaner than other methods. This installation process is generally an easy one, and can be successfully completed by just about anyone using basic construction tools.

Instructions as follows:

                                                      

Firstly, measure the thickness of the cobblestone you are using and add 2 inches. Remove this amount of dirt from the patio area, using the 4-foot level to ensure a level surface. The additional 2 inches will account for the amount of sand bedding.
Secondly, set down a layer of landscaping stone on the newly excavated surface, using the razor knife to cut around the patio edges; this will prevent weeds from growing through the cobblestones.
Thirdly, evenly spread the bedding sand about 2 inches deep over the patio area, then soak with water to settle the sand.
Fourthly, lay the cobblestones over the sand, using tight spacing (unless otherwise desired or directed). It might be easier to lay the cobblestones around the perimeter of the patio, then work your way inward. You might also need to set the level on the stones during this step to ensure a level patio; add extra sand or remove for uneven stones.
Fifthly, spread the jointing sand into the spaces in between the cobblestones; some brands of jointing sand might require the addition of water to set.
