Build a Patio with Limestone Slabs

Updated:2013-10-11 16:55:57
A limestone slab patio looks both rustic and elegant, with its irregular patterns and solid, textured surface. Laying a limestone patio is something you can do yourself if you go with a loose-stone and sand-bed design as opposed to mortaring the stones together. Even though the stones aren't completely flat, the underlying bed should be, so there's still a lot of digging, hauling of sand and rocks, and other physical labour involved in this project.
Instructions as follows:
Firstly, stake out the border for your patio with your wooden stakes and string. Cut the sod on the perimeter of the area with your spade. Dig up and discard the sod throughout the area.
Secondly, lay your weedblocker over the soil, letting the strips overlap as you roll them out, and cutting them at the ends with your razor knife.
Thirdly, spread your sand over the area, smoothing it out with your snow shovel and getting it as level as you can by sight.
Fourthly, adjust the strings on your stakes (the ones that marked out your perimeter) so they are about a foot off the surface of the sand. Put your string level on each span of string and adjust them again to get them level.
