Leveling and building base for clickdeck

Postby Froglet » Sat Jul 11, 2020 9:44 am

Probably basic questions but never done this before...

I've got the bit of my garden seen in the attached image almost ready to put down some click deck (like laminate for decking) and have two questions

1. Although the ground is mostly level I need to flatten it out. I'd rather not have to hire a whacker plate so what's the best way to level/flatten it?

2. I've got gravel, sand and weed membrane ready for the sub base but what's the best order to put them down in? Gravel, sand and then weed membrane or weed membrane first?

I suspect both my questions may have the same answer regarding leveling using the sand rather than trying to level the earth, but I've never done anything like this before so a bit stuck!

Thanks in advance
