Here is a video of the process for a small patio, from start to finish:




From the initial meeting to the job completion:

We start by scheduling a meeting with the customer to choose a design and color, while keeping a budget in mind:

We then prep the area by digging out the existing soil/clay and pack the ground with a tamper:

We then fill the excavated area with base gravel and continue packing the material:

The base is levelled and graded, and a thin layer of sand is spread to fix any imperfections in the surface :

The bricks are then laid and appropriate cuts are made:

The bricks are tamped one last time and sand is swept into the cracks to stabilize the bricks, as well as keep water from getting into the cracks and causing the bricks to shift.

Here is the final product!
