    We are planning on tackling our front garden finally but im a bit stumped on how to approach it. We just want to relay the path to the house and the side path with some new slabs and improve the font steps.

    The problem is that its very uneven and slopes down, and the part to the side of the house is slanting and needs raising slightly so its all at the right level. The steps at the font are also all a bit wonky. I removed one slab on the corner and the base seems to be fine.

    Im not quite sure the best way to tackle this..

    First thoughts was to remove all slabs and shutter it all up and lay new concrete over the base to start fresh but i feel like it would required a lot of concrete! just for the side return its 0.8m3 (20cm x 120cm x 360cm) to level it with the step.

    then if i do level off the path it requires even more, and with an additional step at the front it makes a drop either side onto the grass - which im not sure how to fill in.

    Im planning on replacing the front brick wall with a sleeper wall

    Maybe this is the only way, but would really appreciate any advice! thanks!
