houston asks the perfect question......why is there plastic under there? there shouldn't be. the patio won't be able to drain, in the winter any water that's held on the plastic will freeze and the bricks will heave.

The third time's the charm. There shouldn't be plastic under the brick. It needs to be able to drain. The plastic needs to be removed

Oh why didn't you ask us BEFORE you installed the bricks?

Why would you put plastic underneath? You must have made it without any plastic laying underneath it.
