Measure the stride of the shortest person in the household, and lay out the pavers so that there's a stone underfoot for each step. Start with 3 to 6 inches between courses and adjust from there to fit the last paver without cutting it. To create a curve, tighten the space between inside corners and open it up on outside corners.
