In addition to this, the extent of excavation required also needs to be worked out. That will be determined by the type of soil present.

Mixing the mortar and keeping wet throughout the process is a must.
Avoid laying a large area at one go. For drainage, allow a slight slope that can be done with the help of a carpenter's level. Take care of the joints by spreading sand evenly over them. Also ensure to sweep the sand in the joints till they are properly filled. Next, sprinkle them with water and then let it be. Continue till they get compacted and hard.
