Question Paver Patio

I want to install a new paver patio in my backyard so when I walk out the backdoor I am on the paver patio. The backyard has a slope which is towards the house, backwards I know. How do I or how should I go about installing a new paver patio level in my backyard with the slope of the yard coming towards the house. It's a slight slope. Thank you for any and all input. I shall read each response and take all into consideration.

You will need to regrade the area. The patio should slope downwards away from the house so water runs away from the home. This will make it even deeper into your hill at the outer edge. Normally I would grade the back yard making it a bit steeper slope so a very shallow ditch could be created at the outer edge of the patio.
