So here is my current patio. As you can imagine this holds all the waterwhen it rains. I would like to bring it up to the level of the yard which is about 6 more inches and angle it away from the house. What would be the best way to go about this? I would like to use pavers again but nicer than the bricks you see here. Can i leave the current bricks in there? what would be best to use to raise it up, gravel and then sand? Any help would be great thanks! Id like to try this myself if I had some more info.
