Gap Under Front Concrete Patio

There is a cavity under the concrete patio on the front of my townhouse and it looks terrible and I don't want to hide it with bushes.

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

I was thinking about chipping off the excess concrete, building forms flush to the preexisting concrete, fashioning a hole to funnel concrete through, to build down the sides of the concrete.

Then I would probably resurface the entire patio because it is in disrepair as a whole.

I was thinking hydraulic cement to fill the gap, but I'm not sure.

I can't post the pictures I have, which is pretty annoying, but if anyone is interested I could email them, or send you the imageshack link...

I'd really like to diy this, and have been having trouble finding and info on this project.

If I can do this project, I'll contemplate taking up the concrete walk leading to the patio/steps and putting a new walk down myself, because it has been pitched by tree roots.

Before you decide to do such a concrete job, it's good to find out what caused the imperfections in the first place, correct and continue.
How big is the area you are talking about?

You can post a link to your image, you just have to be sneaky about it. Put a space between the www and the rest of the address, then all we have to do is copy/paste it and remove the space.
