Gravel Patio query
So i am a novice gardener who is trying to build a low maintenance garden (you know, the one that just needs a trim every month or so) and I decided that a small gravel patio to extend the existing paved patio would be a good idea.
Now, I've done some research but thought I'd ask those that know more than me about how to actually do what I need to do.
At the moment i have cleared a patch of grass and dug down to roughly 50mm in preparation for the next phase. As it would be a busy patio, i thought that putting some Gravel Grids/Mats would be a good idea to stop the gravel shifting too much.
My query is, in what order should they be laid? Should it be:
Compacted soil > Compacted Sand > Weed Membrane > Grids > Gravel..... or
Compacted soil > Weed Membrane > Compacted Sand > Grids > Gravel.....
Your thoughts are much appreciated for this stumped novice
