    1. +bandq Hi there, he’s replied with the following:

      “It is more difficult when the ground is not level. You could work from the lowest point and dig to the correct level all over the area from that point but would mean building some sort of retainer where the ground is higher. Or you can work from the highest point but would mean building up with brick or block along the lowest edges to retain the hardcore.”
      I hope this helps!
