Follow this simple guide to build your own brick patio.
Dig your area 7" deep. It will need a slight slope to it to promote water run-off. Cover landscape fabric with about 4" of gravel, then make the surface as level as possible and tamp it.
Add a 1" layer of sand and then screed the sand to make the surface level and even, and then tamp it down.
Check to make sure it is level with the guide strings, and then tamp.
Choose a brick pattern, and begin to lay bricks down starting at one of the corners, leaving 1/4" between each one. Make sure to level them with a Carpenter's level on a piece of wood.
Then sweep sand onto the bricks to fill in the spaces and continue until they are all filled. Carefully rinse with water.
