advice on raising a patio


I currently have a 10 x 14 patio that was made from 12 x 12 and 16 x 16 patio pavers. I am planing on enlarging it but also I am looking for a way to keep it from flooding. The original one was dug down and is about 2 inches below cement walkway the leads to the back door (area towards grass is deeper from shifting). I have included a picture of what it looks like now that the pavers are removed, and as you can see it has just rained and it is totally flooded. Any advice would be appreciated.

advice on raising a patio


I've done projects like this before and would love to offer some advice. The problem is that I have no idea of what I'm looking at in your pic.

advice on raising a patio


Hi! This is a picture of my patio with the 12 x 12 pavers removed. It had just rained and the whole thing turned into a mini pool and filled up to the poured cement that comes off the house (also floods when pavers are in place). I am trying to figure out how to raise the patio so the water no longer floods the area. Thanks!!
