    Question small concrete patio with brick??? possible

    I want to build a small 10 foot round patio detached from my house. I am thinking of pouring a concrete slab over gravel and then dropping some bricks and concrete pavers adorned with various tile pieces. Is this possible??? I am walking away from the typical sand base brick top patio because I want to lay these bricks on a non-symmetrical pattern. Am I wasting my energy or is this possible? Thanks for any information.

    I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination so keep that in mind when reading my response. If I wanted to do something like what you are talking about, I would think that the best way to do it would be to pour the slab below grade (the normal height of the surrounding land + grass) and then set the pavers, bricks and tile pieces in the proper type of mortar just like you would when building a vertical wall but horizontally instead. You will need to use a LOT more mortar for the obviously thinner tile pieces but I believe that it would work. If none of the experts here answer your question, you can probably get some good advice at Home Depot or Lowe's on a project like that too. Good luck!
