Planning the area to be paved is your first step. Decide where the pavers will go and determine if there is enough space for this. Measure the width and the length of the area to be paved. Then multiply the width by the length. The result gives the square footage of the area to be paved. Add 5% to get count cutting and wastage during installation. Establish the height that the pavers should reach and not exceed. Paving stone always slop downward from the home or building.

Once the excavation is complete, the next step is the laying of the base material. We normally use crushed rocks as a base material. Edging is essential in the maintenance of your paved area. Before laying the pavers, a layer of bedding sand is placed over the compacted base material. This layer provides a bed into which the pavers are set. The sand bedding also helps to protect the sand joints from being eroded away.

Lay the pavers in the pattern and design of that you have planned for. Lay them close together. Some pavers have space bumps incorporated into the paver design. Sweeping sand over the surface which fills up the joints locks the pavers into place. Wait till the pavers and sand become dry.
