 photo 122.jpgthis gives us levels and falls for water we also place our gully pots to catch all the debris they are fitted with sludge buckets  photo 120.jpg we then started from the far side working to the gate we set up our templates which i designed my self.they are better than the old way of laying. photo 124.jpg the setts are laid on a 4/1 sharp sand cement mix tapped in to level with lump hammer  photo 125.jpg as you can see we have a gazebo x2 which gives us 32m2 of protection from rain and sun they are tested to 70mph winds there from poptents northern ireland.
