    Hello, I'm reading that I need 4 inch recycled base and a 1 inch sand base because of the rain and snow. I live in southern California we hardly get rain let alone snow, is the 4 inch recycled base really necessary? and if so what's the least I can get away with?

    Hi everyone - I'm building an 18'x22' patio, and the plan was to remove 8" of soil, then build up using 4" of compacted 2A and 1" of concrete sand as the base for my 2-3/8"pavers. I paid a guy (who came very highly recommended) to do the excavating, and I'm planning to do the rest of the job...
  3. Concrete, Stone & Masonry
    Hi There, I would like to build a paver patio next to the pond, about 7'x10'. I would leave a foot or so along the back for plants, mulch, and runoff. My concerns before committing are: 1) It is at the low point of my sloping yard (probably drops 1 ft. for every 10 ft. or so). 2) The cinder...

    I began to excavate for a paver patio right next to my house a month and a half ago. I have the general outline dug out and i'm in the process of sloping the ground away from the house and getting the pitch right before putting down the stone layer. I had a busy few weekends and was not able to...

    Hi! I finally finished leveling my small paver patio that our grill sits on. Our yard slopes and it was a real bear getting it to this point. Two of the edges (the left side and edge away from the house) are somewhat elevated above the grass/soil line and I'm not sure how to finish them off...

    I am looking for some advice. We have a small "starter home" in Michigan. The previous owners had installed a brick paver patio and sidewalk that was buckling, rippled, and loaded with weeds. Last weekend we pulled (about 2,000 brick) it out thinking that we would re-lay it ourselves. Then we...
