How to build slabs and lay path/patio/walkway

Featured
My front yard was very dangerous with the ground being uneven together with rocks of all sizes and mud.  So I decided to at least make the path to my house more safe and also more beautiful but temporary as later I would remove it and make it much better.  

In this instructable I will show how I proceeded by tracing the path, building and laying the slabs in place. At the end there will also be pictures of how it became after about 3 months.

The Second image shows how the path looked before.

Tools required:-
PIck- For digging and moving huge rocks
Hoe- To help remove Soil
Rebar and Binding wire- To make skeleton for slab
Concrete- Used to build the slabs and other small stuffs
Hammer- Used to build and demolish things (but mostly for putting in nails)
Nails- to joins in pieces on wood
Woods planks - to build mould for pouring the slabs( other enclosures can be used)
Rod and Line- used to set straight line to aid in positioning the slabs correctly
Measuring tape- to help in the various parts of the assignment
Old carpet- used to pour slab on so that slab does not stick onto concrete (other materials can be used too)
Pry-bar- to dismantle the mould, remove nails but also aid in removing stones and to dig
Level- to check level on ground and adjusting the slabs
