When I built a patio, the sub-base extended about 6" beyond the paver area.
My driveway is paved right up to the property line. I want to pull it up and install pavers.
Is it possible to paver my driveway right up to the property line without digging into my neighbors lawn?

Pavers have to have edging, even more critical on driveways. The 6" extension of gravel base is correct, but who knows what a neighbor might do in the future with your 6" extension and the edging fastened into his yard (like putting in a fence, digging for a pipe). Have you thought of doing a concrete curb as edging - either exposed or concealed? Details courtesy of Belgard:



Also if you ever want to put a fence keep the driveway back 6" from the prop line anyway.

No,
- As mentioned you need some kind of an edge or the pavers will travel.
- You never want to go to the property line, unless you're 110% certain about the exact location of the line. Property line disputes are common in fences, trees and other things, and cost money to settle.

Thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for.
Ideally, I could back off the line by 6" but my driveway is exactly 100" wide between my house and neighbor's chain link fence. I don't want to make it more narrow. My neighbor gave me the go ahead to remove her fence but I need to think about it first.
