If you want to know how to do it, this book is superb! From questioning if you are fit enough, and realistically have the time, to setting out and showing different laying techniques.Reading this will help you through the whole process. Its for you to judge if you have the skill to complete your project.

If you are thinking of getting your drive/patio redone, read this first, in the hope that you won't be duped into commissioning an inferior product. It's easily understood by the laywo/man, has clear diagrams and is very comprehensive. Since I'm not a DIYer, I skipped those bits, but it looks like it would really help them too.

Excellent book , Tony is a ground worker genius. I built my Million pound barn out of the dirt using
advise from Tony's Pavingexpert site. I hadnt even built a childrens playhouse before.
I like concrete more than the wife and kids now. Cheers Tony

Well written, informative and enough depth so that you can appreciate the subject in it's entirety. A must have for the competent DIY'er who is about to undertake this type of job and would probably teach the professionals a thing or two.

This is a very well written interesting and informative book on what would normally be a very boring subject (driveways paths and patios). Written with humour and style and beautifully illustrated in colour with helpful diagrams. Best technical book I have read for years. Well worth the money.

Lots of information, the author obviously knows his stuff.
But personally I found it less helpful than the authors website, for my particular purpose.
If however you want a good grounding in this subject as a whole then this book will do you rather well.

Too many books on paving skip the detail. For example the different types of concrete mix and which one to use for what. Also the first resource I have found that explains how to edge block paved patios properly so that they don't sink and spall out after a few months.

Building your own patio is not for the faint hearted but with this book (and the accompanying website) as your guide you can do a good job almost as well as the pros and save yourself a stack of money into the bargain.

On this topic - there is no better printed resource.
