Laying rustic loose paving slabs to make a path :  don't need to bed them in mortar. Start by laying the slabs in place, to get the spacing and arrangement right.

Smooth the sand and check that it's level, then lay the slab on top - taking care that the surface doesn't protrude above the level of the surrounding turf. Fill any gaps around the slab with soil or sand.
