    I curently have a concrete slab patio 3m x 4m that i want to re do with nicer slabs. The current slabs are bedded down in 3 foot of concrete and so pulling them up is out of the question.

    Can i overlay and whta preparation would i need to do first, can i just put a layer of sand over the top and lay them over?

    I have checked the height tollerance and this is fine.
     
  2. I wouldn't think that would be a problem.

    Not on sand!

    Use SEARCH as this has been answered loads of times. Have fun.
