    The reason for the decking was because the golden canes got under the existing slab cracking it along with the tiles and lifting it around 2 inches. Canes now gone so cheaper to deck it than jackhammer it all up and end up with what we started with.

    There was two slabs, the first was the pool itself with a expansion gap with the walkway slab between the pool and the house. The canes root system got inbetween the the two slabs and lifted it out of the ground by around 40mm in the process breaking afew tiles. The canes were planted 20yrs ago and would have been approx 6-8 m tall

    This stuff

    It was used 16 years ago and holding quite well I have just drilled out repluged then drilled and reutached  all the safety wire brackets. Then just recorked the gaps were it had pulled away. I would guess it’s to stop the water running down the walls.
    Cheers for the advice and apologies for getting of track on Pauly’s post

    Lets get back on track here fellas. PB needs a new slab.  Or deck.
    I suggest you look at Soapy"s paving job in the mower thread.  
    Its a fukin beauty.  All you need is a big pile of old bricks and bobs your uncle.

    Geez i do have a big block and other than the odd python coming in for a quick look, and a stray bat or two, never imagined looking at the native wildlife on the way to have a dip. Have you ever considered the advertising industry...
