Hi,

As title, extending the patio quite a bit, it is about 10m2 or so of mixed sizes Sandstone paving, approx 50-60mm from final surface to the current ground level. I am guessing it is possibly going to justify buying a 1m3 bag of sand? I am sure I will manage to make a better job of it than the caravan dweller that did the first part, 20-30mm between slabs, uneven fall, the ones next to the wall have about 2mm gap to try and squeeze the grout into etc. One step at the end even has a reverse fall into the corner against the wall of the house! 600 deep step and about 20mm lower at back edge than front edge.

So how much sand and cement am I likely to need please?

The brick laying problem was it was either 12:1 sand:cement, or he just carried on with stuff that had gone off, either way the mortar was like apple crumble topping.

I will order in a bag and most of the cement, not all as I dont have enough room in the dry for much cement.
