Using a tiller, dig up the ground where you want to install the patio. Remove all grass and weeds.
Dump about two inches of crushed rock on the dirt. Use a 2x4 to spread the rock over the entire area until it is level throughout.
Roll out weed cloth on top of the crushed rock.
Pour sand over the top of the weed cloth, and spread it out with the 2x4 or a rake until you have about two inches of sand.
Choose the pattern for the patio and lay the bricks out on top of the sand. Push in bricks that are not level with the others.
Pour sand on top of the bricks, and sweep it around the patio until all the cracks are filled. Repeat as necessary if there are loose bricks.
