Laying paving slabs can be a lovely alternative to a typical patio or pathway in your backyard – however, before attempting this project, please keep in mind that paving slabs can be very heavy.
Please have a second person on hand to assist you, and do not strain yourself if you find the pieces are too heavy. If you are going to lift them yourself, make sure that your back is straight and that your legs take the weight instead of your back and midsection. Any slabs over 600x600mm should always, always be carried by two people. Also, be sure to wear heavy gloves and protective clothing to avoid irritation or burns on your skin.
