Re leveling paving


Hi I had a blue stone patio laid a year ago. The pavers were laid on road base and a thick layer of cement/concrete or the pavers are cemented down. As I've started using the garden I've noticed that the patio was not laid properly, it is not level.

I would like to know if this can be fixed without ruining the pavers?

Re leveling paving


Yes understand that there should be pitch, but this seems like a lot. It is gradual goes from 0in to around 3in, when you look at the BBQ and garden table they on a slant?

Re leveling paving


Slanted furniture will drive you crazy...
Was this professionally done? If so, have you contacted them? They should guarantee their work, or at least offer to why it is so uneven

Ayuh,... Is that over a 3' run, or a 30' run,..??

If you want to, just shim the BBQ, 'n table to nearer level...

Re leveling paving


My garden runs along the side of my house and is on a corner lot, which means the garden is in section. The back of the garden which houses the washing line this part of the patio is level so I could certainly move the BBQ there but would not be pratical also it's not a very nice area or just a plain space to hang washing.

Half way down the side of the house is when the paving starts to slop and this is the nice part of the garden, when I say it's a gradual slop this is within a 3m area, so dose not matter where I put stuff it will still be on a slant.

Looks like I will have to get seating and a table made to counteract the slop?
