bury the bodies before you start putting the sand down.
My brother did his patio following a tutorial from a magazine, and it came out pretty nicely. I think the important thing is to take it slow and prep the foundations properly so you don't need to worry about uneven slabs or weeds coming up through.
Make sure you tilt it away from your house slightly or if it rains heavy your house will very quickly become the local swimming pool. As Varakir says, it's all in the preparation, make sure you get the foundations right and the rest should be a breeze.
Don't skimp, if it says 6" of sand then use 6" and be prepared for some back breaking work, shoveling sand and hardcore is not easy and theres going to be lots of it, seriously, LOTS!
Saves you a lot of aggravation, frustration, sore muscles and medical expenses from being airlifted to the hospital with heat stroke. Just stand back and watch someone else sweat, curse and do all the work while your drinking frosty beer and being happy in the fact you were smart enough to avoid the manual labor. :grin:
