Brick Parking Pad
I am planning on building a parking pad at the end of my yard, not attached to the house at all.
I got a quote for concrete, as I was planning on building a shed and car cover on it, but it was very expensive. I have been thinking of asphalt, but then thought paving stone, or even red brick might look better with the aesthetic of the yard.
How much of a sub structure would I need to put down to ensure that the bricks don't sink, or if I use paving stones (2'x2' concrete slabs) making sure they won't crack under the weight of the car.
If this a comparable cost to asphalt, given that most of the labour would be done myself? If it matter, I am in Toronto, so get a fair amount of freezing weather in the winter.
