Recommended Installation Guideline for Pavers (Foot Traffic) DRY SAND BASE
Approximate 50-80 compacted road base. Depth dependant on road traffic or pedestrian requirements. Top road base with fine metal then compact to smooth surface with correct falls. (use string lines) Loose screed approximate 20-30mm course bedding sand.
Place pavers carefully on sand as to not disturb surface levels, butting them up against each other. Match the ends for even thickness as they may vary slightly.
A wet diamond saw blade produces the best cutting result.
If available, Pavefill is recommended as the joining sand. Sweep Pavefill or similar in abundance and use a light weight (30kg max) vibrator (with carpet underneath) plate to compact in the Pavefill. This will also settle the pavers into place. Sweep off excess and spray with a fine mist of water to lock up the paving. It is recommended the pavers be sealed on completion. The surface and sand must be dry. Sealing prevents marking.
