NO MORE WEEDS! Repointing / Leveling / Cleaning An Old Patio

In this video I work on leveling, re-pointing and cleaning our old patio which had lots of issues for a complete makeover. The old mortar pointing between the slabs was loose and damaged which caused a constant weed problem which I wanted to resolve once and for all. I also needed to level a few of the slabs which had sunk in the ground over time, and for that I make a simple wooden jig which helped me to level the sub-base at the perfect height.

Patio / Laying Paving Slabs

In this video I lay a subbase foundation for my patio using MOT Type 1 hardcore, compact it all, and then mix up some mortar using sharp sand, cement and water for laying some 450mm square riven concrete paving slabs, and then I can do the pointing between the slabs.
