Mick George Ltd will soon offer a huge range of paving slabs, in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours to give your garden the look you desire.

Step 1: – ‘Dry’ lay patio – to double check size, layout and material quantities before setting

Step 2: – Dig out minimum 300mm depth below the damp proof course for foundation mix and paving. Allow 1cm fall for every 60cm of width to ensure drainage

Step 3: – Create firm foundation using concrete mix of all in one Ballast with 1 part cement, add water and mix before laying and levelling to a 75mm depth across entire area

Step 4: – Apply mortar bed to support the whole slab not just the corners. Mix 6 parts sharp sand to 1 part cement, add water to dampen but not to wet or runny

Step 5: – Set up 2 taut string lines, running length and width, to guide the line and level of the paving

Step 6: – Working from the corner outwards, lower the slabs into place, tapping repeatedly with a rubber mallet until settled and leave for 24 hours

Step 7: – Use mortar mix of 3 parts building sand to 1 part cement, add water for smooth consistency and trowel in to the joints, smoothing along the way
