Raising paver walkway 2-3 inches


I need to raise an existing paver walkway 2-3 inches to match a new driveway. Take out pavers and sand and add 2-3 inches of base rock or just add 2-3 inches of sand. Or something else?

What are you using for edging?

Currently there is bendable edging held in with stakes with landscape rocks on both sides. If I raise the walk up, will I have to add in a bunch of rocks?

You'll need something for edging to contain the pavers and whatever you use to raise the bed.

I would use sharp sand then some sharp rock (crushed stone), on top of the sand, compact them both then re-install the pavers and do a little compaction on them also.
