Morning all. I'm a DIY'er here, so excuse the lack of knowledge and experience! I am planning to lay new slabs in 2 corners of my garden that were previously paved with random bricks and slabs of different sizes with some sandstone slabs, but when I pulled up the old slabs and started to dig the ground I came across a big tree root in the corner of one of the areas that is close to the surface and is not going anywhere! What are my options here to get around this? The only thing I can think of is to raise the ground up and level on top of it, which wasn't the original plan, but that root is there to stay! Hopefully you can see it in the pictures attached. The size of the are itself isn't huge and will be used mainly to store the kids toys etc. on, so is a sub-base needed for it? Cheers all.
