Edging is a must for spaces that do not border cement, brick, stone, wood or stucco, etc. take note the height of the brick should not be much higher than top level of edging if using sand in between pavers.

Plus, young man made me prove I was a veteran. I spent 20 minutes looking for my honorable discharge certificate in my photos. Then he took that opportunity to lecture me about having it available during purchase. HD is NOT veteran friendly.

Without putting a several inch layer of sand, these were very unforgiving while leveling the stones. They don’t say flat very well. I would pay for more sand and forget these next time.

Is it possible to lay artificial grass on top of paver

Asked by: Rick
Yes, you can use the panels for under turf. Use landscape pins to hold panels in place thru rolling your turf out.. Make sure to support the outside panels. Use top fill to hold your turn in place.

We are making 18X18 patio, our local garden centre don’t know what sand I am asking but suggesting tonuse HPB under these pads. That also make sense to us since we can’t finish laying all pavers in one day. Can we use HPB under these pads?? 

Asked by: Annie
HPB is a 3/8' aggregate isused as the base (would need 4"), not a replacement for the fabric and sand for under the panels. .

hello. is it dangerous if I have to add a little extra sand to the base prior to laying the panels down. read too much sand could cause shifting but will using the brock paver base negate any shifting underneath?

Asked by: Ang23
Hi, Thank you for this question. No, it is not dangerous. Only use 1 inch of sand or you may get movement.

Considering we are inexperienced and will be working on slow mode transfering stone from front to backyard. Can we lay base with sand or HpB and pads, leave it for few days while putting stones slowly over few days? Will rain spoil uncoverd pads?

Asked by: Annie
The best way to do your project over a few days is to cover it with a tarp and place stones to hold the tarp and panels in place. This will make sure you do not have any washout if it rains.

How deep do I need to dig before putting down sand and this paver base?

Asked by: Michelle
The entire base is 1". The panels are .68" and the 1/2" all-purpose sand is 1/4 when hand tamped. The project will be the thickness of your stone plus 1".

my walkway is uneven already, need to be filled with much gravel stone + limestone screening to level the floor. Once filled and level, wouldn't that considered "Paver Base" already? Is Paver Base Panel still necessary?

Asked by: tpecan
If you are fixing the walkway with base material and 1" of sand, that would be the traditional way to do your base and you would don't use the panels. Make sure there is no more than 1" of sand. If there is, remove the sand, add base material, then 1" of screenings. If you want to fix the walkway with the panels, remove sand, compact the ground (flat with the slope), lay landscape fabric, 1/2" sand then the panels.
