What can I use for base under my patio wall foundation?

Written by: Souraya Farhat

When building a patio wall on soil, you are required to build a solid and leveled foundation for your patio project. 






To achieve a solid and leveled foundation, one must use compactible material.  Good and proper compaction will prevent future settlement and therefore maintain a level surface over time. 
It is recommended that you use material that is gravel in varying sizes of angular or smooth aggregates similar to the wall rock used in building retaining walls, road base and paver base material.
