laying pavment slabs on to old bricks should not be a problem as long as you make sure that they are not sticking up,make sure that the large bricks are broken up and that thay lay flat,put a littel sument or morter in each corner where you are going to lay your slabs so they do not move when set,then brush some morter between the cracks of the pavment slabs,this is what i did when i moved in to a new house,i had all the lod bricks under the lawn,so this is what i did to get ride of the bricks,now i have my greenhouse standing on it.

hi ,i am a keen gardner and is allways looking for tips about watering plants in the greenhouse,i have one tip that i use and that is when you have plants standing in the greenhouse,get a old coke bottel and cut it in half and than hang it above the plant or plants that you are growing and off course keep the cap on,put a hole in the cap and than fill the half bottel with water,make sure that the string or wire is strong,the water will drip on to your plants to keep them waterd,just top the half bottel up evey so often.than you could go out for the day or go away for to or three days,
