di­a­mond blade or al­ter­na­tively on a block split­ter. Lay the pavers in a strip, a me­tre or so wide, and work your way across the area. When you’ve reached the end of the other side, re­peat the process un­til the whole area is fin­ished.

8. Push each paver firmly into the sand and use a rub­ber mal­let to tap down any that pro­trude.

Make sure the pavers are not touch­ing and are left with a 2 to 4mm­gap to be filled with sand later.

9. Af­ter the pavers are laid, com­pact them into the bed­ding sand with a plate com­pactor. To pre­vent the pavers from be­ing dam­aged at­tach an old piece of car­pet to the com­pactor.

10. To fin­ish the job, spread the joint­ing sand into the gaps be­tween the pavers.
