COVID-19: We practice safe social distancing with our team and you, and are pleased to be able to help you move forward on projects during this time.
Proper Paving Stone Installation
By following the proper steps of base preparation/compaction, detailed laying of the pavers, certified edge restraints and polymeric jointing sand – we are left with a driveway parking pad that will stay true for years to come!
Know your base! Lawn Enforcement takes pride in their high attention to detail and we only install to ICPI standards International Concrete Paver Institute. The most common failure that comes from paving stones is improper base and compaction. This will cause settling, rutting and edging failure in your finished product.
Overview of Materials Required for Paving Stones
Geotextile Fabric: Prevents gravel base migration into soil sub-base.
Gravel Base (3/4” minus road base gravel). Here are some rough amounts required:
- Walkways, Patios: 4”
- Driveways, parking pads: 6”-12”
