    At the top o f my garden there is a breeze block enclosure filled with a lot of gravel. Is it ok to lay paving slabs on top using slab layer or should i really clear the gravel out (there is a lot there).

    I would think the gravel would tend to move leading to wobbly paving.

    The recommended way seems to be a layer of hard core with sand on top.
