Hi,

I am looking to do some work on our garden and having previously installed artificial grass the biggest problem I had was simply getting everything as level as possible!

All I'm looking to do is lay around 20sq/m of paving, pretty generic limestone rectangular slabs and what I was wondering was if there was any benefit to using something like the TrueGrid plastic pavers (link below) which you then fill with type 1 then laying sand followed by the slabs on top. I thought maybe it would be far easier to get these already rigid plastic pavers level, plus it would also give a solid base for the slabs.

Link removed Mod 7

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Will that be strong enough to take a hot tub, about 1000 litres, without and slippage, should I lay a timber retraining border or anything?

Cheers
