Q.How to build a patio ?

Zone Manchester | Calpol89 added on August 20, 2019 | Answered

Hi, I want to remove some existing decking and build a patio underneath. Including fencing around with the addition of a gate (were getting a puppy). The existing decking has been built on top of what looks like an existing patio but I would like to completely start again. My question is do you have any advice on what to look out for, how difficult this will be to do myself and also should I start with the fence around it or the patio first. I don’t like the existing fence would like something more modern. I have zero gardening skills but have found a fair bit on YouTube….

I think this would be better suited for a contractor, or someone that will be knowledgeable on building, or carpentry than a gardener. We can help with the plants, or amending the soil, but we don't really offer any information on contracting and building.

You will have to contact a local contractor in your country, I'm afraid.
