Need advise on new patio
I am looking to make a small brick patio in a shady section of my yard.
Right off the bat... I can't spend a lot of money. I will be doing this all by myself with no help from strong guys. And I'm not especially particular. :-) All I want is a place to put my little table and maybe a small firepit.
I have researched how to make brick patios. My problem is, tree roots.
There is a large pine tree not far from the site and several roots are potruding from the ground.
Most of the websites I have visited say to dig down before laying the brick. I'm wondering if it would be possible to NOT dig down and instead use a lot of sand on top to level it.
I don't know... just a thought. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
