There is not limit to patio and pathway options, but some basic principles apply to all situations.
To get started on the right foot, before we put down any pavers we:
- excavate the subgrade and pack it
- add 3 to 10 inches of gravel, depending on whether we are expecting vehicular traffic, and pack it
- add about 1” of sand, and Pack it again.
Then comes the art of leveling; critical for any attractive patio or walkway. We have done many patio installations, especially with paving stones and slabs. Some lead time may be required if you are requesting a material that may be in limited supply, so plan ahead for that.
