Since this reply is 2 months later I suppose you either already did the patio or procrasinated it til next year.

I also live in Northeast. Use sand or "screed" (the rock dust created when trap rock is crushed).

Do not use concrete. Good drainage and a deep base are the only things that will save you from frost damage.

Good luck.
