I have three main questions, first is there any real problem with the patio being over the old tree stump? It was ground down 2-3" and with the fill dirt I will be bringing in there will be another 3-5" for a total of 5-8" of dirt over the stump.
Next, what type of dirt or filler should I bring in? Just regular old dirt?
And lastly, how thick should the patio be? This will be simply a back yard patio for bar-B-Qing and sitting on. Nothing heavy will ever be driven on it.
Also, if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them. This will be the first concrete project I have personally installed.
Thanks in advance for all your help and suggestions.
