Patio extension and drainage against house advice pls

Postby YogP » Wed Jun 23, 2021 1:22 pm

Hi all,

As per the title I am after a bit of patio advice. Essentially I am looking to undertake a very small extension of my patio as I've managed to acquire some slabs FOC and as you can see by the pictures the grass simply does not grow.

Slabs are 45x45cm and I plan to use about 20 slabs so approximately 4sq m to cover.

Where I am struggling is firstly what drainage I should put up against the house (there is drainage on the other side of the house as per pics so am thinking to match) and secondly how to reduce the pressure against the fence/posts from the patio and base. The fence belongs to me as does the grass and driveway on the other side of the fence as per pics

Any sensible suggestions welcome
