What makes a good paver patio stone installation?
One of the biggest failings in any install is lack of prep-work. Creating a good solid base will instantly give you better longer results. This achieved by making sure there is no organic matter under your base ie loam. Getting right down to the clay before compacting a crush base means less movement over time. Also using the least amount of sand possible will also give you longer results. Sand isn’t a stable structure and you cant compact it, so having the least amount underneath will benefit you in the long run. We like to keep it down to 1/4″-1/2″ maximum. Also we have found that having a clean edge of cement around the outside will keep it strong for longer than plastic edging. it not only keeps the paver stones in place, but also traps the sand under them, which helps for longevity.
