See photo.

My mum wants me level this off basically and make good.

She reckons I can just lift all the stones, rake the ground level underneath and replace the stones.
But I think its not that easy and will not stay level either.

She doesnt need a pro finish but I am not sure how best to do this in the 6 hours or so I will have. I don't fancy making cement etc.

I am also worried about the slope, can I lay the patio on a slope or do I need to make it flat with a step?

It's already sank substantially so I would guess it's probably sat on soil.

To do it properly it all needs to come up and be levelled correctly with a sand/cement dry bed (it will harden with moisture from the soil).

If it is on soil now then you may need to dig out a little to allow for the sand/cement bed.
