Front walk and tree roots
We have a front walk made of brick that is in need of replacement/repair. The path is right under a massive spruce tree (more than 30 years old), and the roots have heaved up the bricks in places. In an ideal world, the tree would never have been placed where it is, so close to the house. But I don't want to cut it down or damage it now.
What would be the best material to use to create a new walk? Can the current walk be repaired, and graded to ride over the roots? Could the root be safely cut by a tree surgeon? Any advice appreciated.
