The Patio Project

I am having a patio put in the garden because when I sit in my chairs on the gravel the chairs keep settling down and it is hard for me to get out of the chairs and walking on gravel is not pleasant with flip-flops. My contractor and I have had discussions about how big and where it will be and now how high the bricks will be sticking out of the ground. So far the top-level of gravel has been removed and more sand has been added to make the ground level.  Today three men have worked on this project, seems there is more to laying bricks on the ground than meets the eye.

The plan includes space for a fire pit, I have one I have never used it uses real wood. I’m not fond of using real wood because of the smoke I may buy a portable camp fire from Camper’s World to use and avoid the whole smoke in the eyes thing.

Here are photos of the work so far;
