Postby tyu18 » Sun Jan 31, 2021 11:24 am

Hello all

I am in planning to tackle my garden by building a new patio .

Got couple question i have mixture of concret and dirt where the patio will be laid at difererent heights my idea is to raise the height of the dirt/grass area to same of the concrete area before i lay the patio slabs. ... xOajRuV2VR
Also the best way to lay the slabs will be with cement?
When i lay the slabs against the house should i put a barrier for moisteure?
My idea is the either use slabs or even make this ... od_id=2861

Hi tyu18
Yes raise the base area level with the existing concrete. Don’t forget to raise the inspection chamber. Lay slabs on a sharp sand/cement mix.
