It’s very important to lay slabs on a sand base. This will minimize any chance of movement. Here, we’ve used broken concrete roof tiles as a hardcore. Spread your dry slab laying mix over the hardcore. Refer to the fact file of the end of the tape for quantities. The mix needs to be at least a half an inch deep.
Level this up with the brick laying trowel and create a few channels with the point of the trowel. This will make leveling up easier. Now it’s time to lay your first slab. Always keep your back straight and bend the knees when lifting heavy objects. Lay the slab gently so as to not disturb the bed.
Tap down the slab. To do this, we’ve used the handle of a hammer. Look at the foe of the slab from left to right. If you're laying a patio the grade should always be away from the wall. Here, we’ve achieved an average grade being about 15 millimeters over 600 millimeters. Lay the level onto the slab and tap down the side you wish to grade to run until the bubble moves to about half way down on the line instead of following in between the lines.
This must be consistent with all the slabs to achieve the same grade. Check that the slab is stable in its bed. If there is any movement on its diagonals tap more of the mix onto the relevant corner or corners. Then recheck. Now that you're on your starting point continue to lay slabs from your first slab. As you lay your other slabs ensure that the edges shore up to each other to maintain squareness. However, it must be pointed out that this is only the case when the slab is being used to have a straight edge.
Some slabs have an uneven face and need a gap of some 10 to 15 mm between each other when laid. If you design to use this after laying them put the same dried mix into the joints. This will harden from the moisture in the sand.
Once your first row of slabs is laid down, start the second row. If you check over your measurements with the level there will be no need to work out the grade on each slab again. They are all transferred over.
