Image 3: Remove and grade sub soils to appropriate depth
Image 1: Use string lines to set final grade. This shows our final
elevation (top of pavers) and helps ensure proper slope for water flow
Image 2: Spread several inches of class 2 base evenly in all paving
areas. This is an aggregate made of crushed rock and recycled concrete
which is used as a paving sub-base for freeways and roads as well as
driveways and patios. Its ability to compact and firm up makes it ideal for
this type of application.
Image 3: Compact base to proper density using a plate compactor. This
will ensure a solid foundation to build upon.
Image 1: Spread evenly 1 inch of jagged edge bedding sand in all paving
Image 2: By screeding the sand between 1 inch diameter pipes, a
perfectly smooth and even bed is prepared for the pavers to be laid upon.

stone. The border stone hides cut stones to give a finished look to the
entire outer perimeter of your paver installation.
Image 2: For edge stones that do not border other hardscape (existing
concrete slab, wall, etc.), the paver is wet-set onto a concrete bond
beam. This provides support along the entire edge, keeping the pavers
within these borders from loosening or shifting over time.
Image 3: Once all pavers are laid and borders are cut and cemented in,
sand is swept over the entire field, filling in all the joints between the
stones. This process is repeated until the joints cannot accept any more
Image 1: The sanded pavers are then compacted with a vibrating plate to
seat the stones into the sand bed below them. This also works the joint
sand from the previous step farther down into the joints and ensures the
Image 2: Once the pavers are sanded and compacted, the fully
interlocked pavers are swept and rinsed completely clean of excess sand
and debris. Finished sand level in a paver joint should be approximately
1/8 inch to 1/4 inch below the bevel of the paver.

and curb appeal that is truly clear and long-lasting.
