Default Adding Paving slabs to your Caravan Entrance

I found this great Video on You Tube about how to best lay paving slabs if you do not have Decking or a Path to access your Caravan.

Please get permission from the Park Owners as some may or may not allow you to do this.

Basically if you do not have Decking and use your Van all year round a great way to stop all the Grass and Mud being taken inside is by adding a small Paved Path to your Caravan.

The video below says it all really, Enjoy

I have all the tools, only one problem, they are all in Spain. It's a good job my son has everything I need, otherwise, it would cost a small fortune to buy them.

Yes, Its pretty straightforward, and you can get the majority of the materials in 25kg bags so not overly heavy.

Remember to ask permission of the site owners, as not all sites allow you to do this.

Another Tip is to dig down into the grass at the required depth, this is so the top of the slab is flush with the top of the grass, this helps when the site cuts the grass they can go right over and cut it close to the slabs

^Yes I will ask permission, but it does seem they are ok with owners making changes. I think most importantly as you mention is to make sure slabs are flush with the grass so the site has no problems when mowing, otherwise that may pee them off

Thanks again matey, was surprised how easy it looked

Hi Gerry1964 It might be an idea to add couple of 'tags' to your post it would add it to the 'tags' list and so be easier for people to find, its a great post and I'm sure people would find it helpful

I think if I remember correctly you will have the option to add or change tags if you click to edit your post, or try to click advanced if that doesn't do the trick

Try 'advanced edit' I've just added tags to an older thread I started to test it
