patio under deck

I WANT TO PUT A PATIO/DECK UNDER MY EXISTING DECK. THE BASEMENT DOOR IS ABOUT 4" UP FROM THE GROUND. CAN I LAY 4X4'S ON THE GRAVEL AND NAIL DECKING TO THEM OR WILL THIS JUST SETTLE AND SHIFT OVER TIME ( I DON'T GET MUCH SNOW UNDER THE DECK). OR WILL IT BE CHEAPER TO INSTAL A BRICK PATIO.

I don't know about cheaper, but if you are only talking 4 inches, I would place a good fill sand bed, with concrete pavers on top. There again, if you simply want something to give you solid cover, 4 inches is the standard thickness for a concrete slab. I would not recommend the wood setting directly on the ground. It won't last due to movement.
