    Hi All , I hope you will be able to help with the following query I have.

    I am laying a garden path to a storage shed, the individual paving slabs will have a 100mm gap in between them and will be back filled with gravel.

    Due to the irregular shape of the area i am covering, it would be more efficient (and easier) to fasten down the weed membrane (PVC woven type)first ,then lay the slabs on a mortar bed on top of the weed M.

    I have laid a hardcore bed underneath , but am worried that the slabs will not be able to adhere properly and will not stay in place.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or advice regarding this ?

    All advice gratefully received.

    Glenn

    Hi All , Ignore my earlier post , funny how things suddenly sort themselves out !.

    I've figured it out ,

    1. lay membrane
    2. lay slabs in postion and cut membrane.
    3. fold back membrane and lay slabs on mortar.

    Doh!!
