I really need some advice having never attempted anything like this before.
I am attempting to build a 28m² (4x7m) patio and so far I have:
Dug out soil to 150mm
Added 6 tonnes of type 1 MOT sub-base
Added some sharp sand to fill some of the voids left by the type 1
I now have 2 problems:
1. I'm worried about levelling as the size of the grains are so large and there doesn't seem to be enough grit for binding. When I try and use a
spirit level and drag them, the stones just don't sit right. do I need MOT type 2?
2. I forgot to incorporate a fall from the house so the base so far is 'relatively' flatish. What's my next steps since I buried my pegs to set the height.
Many thanks in advance from a complete noob!
