Can a handyman lay a patio?

Handypeople are amazing trades who can help you with a huge variety of jobs, both inside and outside the house. But can a handyman lay a patio?

Well, that depends on the handyman or woman! Some handypeople will offer patio laying as part of their services but others won’t.

As a general rule, there are no specific services that handypeople are required to offer. They can generally carry out small repairs and home improvements that don’t require qualified tradespeople. But exactly what services this includes will vary depending on your handyperson’s skillset, experience and interests.

If you’re looking for someone to lay your patio, you could approach handypeople, landscapers or even brick layers. Just make sure that they have experience laying patios – always check their online reviews and, if possible, look at photos of previous patios they’ve laid. Our guide to hiring a local patio contractor has more handy tips.

We’d recommend getting at least three tradespeople to quote for your project before choosing the right one for you. You can find professionals who offer patio laying services using our free search feature.
