I live on a small lake. My backyard slopes about 30 deg toward the lake.
I would like to build a patio at the edge of the lake. The patio would be about 3 - 4 ft above the ground at its highest point. It will be about 3 ft wide and 12 ft long.
What do I need to build this patio using concrete blok?
Do I need to pour a footing or can I use block as the footing?
If I need to pour as footng how do I keep the cement from sliding down the hill?
Any other info would be appreciated.
