Installing Interlocking Pavers

Interlocking Pavers

Planning and creating the perfect paving stone installation for your specific project can be highly rewarding when done correctly. Whether you do it yourself or hire a contractor, the following steps will need to be followed.

Determine the amount of materials needed.

Excavate the area and compact the soil.

Install geotextile fabric and an aggregate base.

Install edge restraints and bedding sand.

Place the concrete pavers in place and use a vibratory plate compactor to set them.

Sweep in joint sand and clean up.
