I used crushed gravel as a base for patio. I'd like the patio to get as close as possible to the house but am realizing that it may not be good to put the pavers right up against the siding.
The gravel is about now 3-4 inches "up" the siding as you can see in pictures.
Should I dig out the stones I put down against the house? Maybe just keep the patio 1/2 foot away from the house?
