You now have all information you need on how to lay a wonderful, long-lasting patio.
If you don't already have this, find out how you can download the Video Tutorial and Supplementary Notes.
Now let's take a look at the list of all the tools and materials that you will need to build your patio.
Several options may be listed. Choose any within your budget. You may be able to borrow or hire at least some of the tools if you don't already have them.
I have used a link to several online suppliers, so that you can see what the tools and materials look like. Often, buying online is a cheaper way to get what you need, is sometimes more convenient, and, generally, there is more choice, but you could take a look and then buy from a local DIY store or builder's merchant.
When you lay your patio, there are different tools that you can use for the same job. What you choose to use may depend on your level of experience, strength and budget. The different choices are clearly listed.
Always take great care when using power tools. Wear good footwear and eye protection, and make sure you use a circuit breaker at the plug end. This will prevent electrocution if a cable is cut. Switch off and store power tools - or any tools for that matter - safely, keeping children and pets well away from the site. Concentrate, taking regular breaks.
