Installing Patio Pavers
To drain well, the patio should slope away from the house ¼-inch per foot. Adjust your level string lines to reflect this. Then sprinkle sand or flour over the strings to transfer the patio layout to the ground. Where the strings cross to mark the corner of the patio, suspend a plumb bob from the line, and mark the corner with a nail struck through a piece of paper into the ground.
