    Decided to remove the gravel path, take up the slabs underneath and going to add topsoil and re-sead. Once it’s taken hold, I will then cut shapes in the grass to add new black slate stepping stones down to the man cave.

    This is how it looked this morning

    And an hour or so later before it started to snow again

    So the heavy rain showed up some drainage issues. Found out there was another path under the path i also took out. More digging and removal and another 1.5t of topsoil and its now pretty level along with 2.5kgs of grass seed
