Construction and building specialist, Chris Smith, gives us a step-by-step guide to laying a patio. Follow the video guide to complete this project. You can also download this handy guide to the project.

This is an intermediate project as there are many steps to completing the patio and you may need to hire some equipment (such as a mixer) to assist you. However, if you follow this comprehensive guide, you should have no trouble at all in laying your own patio at home.
