Paving & Concreting
Dec 16, 2020 5:01 pm
I'm not sure whether this is the correct forum for my question.
Our townhouse is built on a slightly sloping block. At the back of the house is a timber deck on posts, which makes up the entire backyard. The void underneath (in red) is between 20 and 100cm high.
The deck needs repair/replacement at some stage soon. Instead of a new timber deck which needs lots of maintenance (and we don't like timber decks in general) we are thinking of backfilling that void and having the courtyard paved (or having a concrete slab poured and tiled with bluestone).
I'd imagine this would need careful planing of a drainage system and likely a building permit.
Is this something a landscaper would do or do we need a builder? Where do we Strat the process?
Many thanks in advance!

All done! Will just need to open up the sides for ventilation!
