I have successfully built quite a few brick sidewalks around the house and
contemplating building a large brick patio. It would be appx 400 sq ft.
Because I could only work on it during weekends I would build it in
sections. My thought is to use forms to section it off and leave the forms
in place, covering them up as I move to the next section. The forms would be
1x4s to level off the sand. Does anyone think this will significantly
affect the integrity of the patio over the long term?
Are you laying the brick in sand or on a concrete base? I assume sand
and I don't see where you would have any unexpected problems. After all, the
worse that could happen is you may want to remove a row or two and set them
if a problem arises.
