The blue pipe on the left use to soak on to the old patio but when I removed it part of the decking was rotton and the ground soaked, so it will be rerouted in to the pebbles and Bush you can see on left to soak away. The blue tub is an existing water feature, and the stone barbecue on right they didn't want moving so it's going to be fiddly there.

Didn't hire one in the end,but looking to invest in the future. Yes i lay a 2" full mortar bed, always have done it that way very solid.

The small bit of patio I did take up was 4 spot and laid on soil, all over the place it was.

Will do, I'm a bit behind due to late delivery waiting on more sharp sand, not until Monday now :sneaky2:. Plus hired help has let me down too, so doing it all on my own until I find someone else.

 

Looking forward to seeing your pics too :001_smile:
