I'd like to make something like this in my backyard but not that elaborate. I just want to have some concrete slabs here and there in the grass to have something to walk on when I step out of the pool and walk over to the gazebo. I'm wondering if I can put these slabs directly on the ground without any rocks or sand or would it be better with something underneath them?
Which needs to be higher? Grass or slabs?
Slabs too high could ruin my mower!
Slabs too low could ruin my grass by cutting it too short!
I'm starting this project from nothing so I guess my question is what is height of the ground (to which I will eventualy plant the grass seeds) compare to that of the slabs?
How do I do this? Help?
