hebe and dwarf conifer stump

Hi everyone if i cut a hehe bush and very small dwarf conifer down to the stump will it grow back if i patio over it? Or do i have to try get the roots out? Issue is the roots are very firmly stuck down! thanks

    The hebe will grow back, the conifer will just die.

    I think that sums it up Daveimage

    Though I've found hebes a bit iffy as well, they do grow back but keel over after a year or so

     a hebe won't regrow through concrete or paving slabs. But you might have trouble levelling for a patio with stumps in the way
