Lay out the area that you would like the pavers. Create a border with 2x4's. lay down sand and crushed stone or rocks and tamp it well with a tamper making sure it is level. Lay the pavers in the pattern that you would like them and use a rubber mallet to ensure they are all level. Once you have gotten all of your pavers in place throw sand on top and sweep the sand into the cracks of the pavers. The sand locks them together and prevents them from shifting. Once you have applied the sand in all of the cracks spray the area with water allowing the sand to get deep within the pavers. Once it has driedcover the patio with sand again and sweep as much as you can into the cracks. .. Your done!
