Product Overview

For many homeowners, building a paver patio or walkway is simply too big and arduous a project. Lots of dirt, digging, hauling and labor. If you ask, most would say, I'll never do that again. Not anymore. Brock PaverBase is a lightweight panel that replaces bag base and most of the sand used in the old way of doing things. Now you can build the patio or walkway of your dreams in a weekend without all the sweat and fatigue. Brock PaverBase offers many advantages over traditional project base construction.

  • Lightweight and durable material makes it easier, faster, and a better way to build your project base, and it costs less
  • Each 5 sq. ft. panel (1 lb.) replaces 4 bags of base (160 lbs.) (1 case = 20 panels, weighs 20 lbs. covers 100 sq. ft.)
  • Simply lay the interlocking panels on top of sand layer and you have a stable and accessible job area, which speeds up the process of laying pavers
  • Digging out only 3 in. or less with brock paverbase Vs. 6 in. to 8 in. with heavy bag paver base makes the job a lot easier
  • Patented product lifetime limited warranty
  • Carry 100 sq. ft. of paverbase to back yard in minutes
  • Use for all paver and patio stone projects, small and large (foot traffic) for professional results, not for driveways
  • Able to walk on panels while installing pavers and patio stones
  • High grade 100% polypropylene is proven as a construction material and provides lifetime stability for your patio
  • Use in all climates (U.S and Canada) cold, hot and especially in freeze thaw regions
  • Channels and holes allow water to flow through the panel into the sand for drainage to avoid ponds on your patio
  • Medium density material is easy to install and cut with utility knife
  • Great for installing irregular shaped stones or multi paver patterns; you can move your pavers around with ease to match your pattern
  • Food grade material is environmentally safe, does not leech chemicals into the ground
  • How many panels do you need, project sq. ft. / 5 = number of panels
  • How much sand do you need, project sq. ft. / 12 = number of bags (for 1/2 in. sand depth)
  • Takes all the hard work out of preparing project base

Customer Questions & Answers

Sand is needed, but desciption says sand is not needed?

From the several questions I've read on here it, it is still instructed to use at least a 1/2" base of sand beneath these base panels, however, per the description from the home depot website is states directly: "Each lightweight panel replaces 200 lbs. (5 bags) of the traditional stone base and sand, so it eliminates the need to dig out 4 in. - 5 in. of dirt and fill it in with heavy bag base." - that description implies that all that is required is to dig out grass in the desired area, make sure it is completely tampered down and level, then install the paver base panels and then the desired pavers on top. Is sand required or not/are these actually only to be used to replace the gravel then?
Asked by: KTK
I did not use sand below the panels but used sand as grout between the pavers. However the earth below the pavers should be moistened and leveled flat first.

Can cut size

Asked by: Betsy
Yes, we had to cut them to make them fit, and had no problems doing so with a sharp x-acto knife.

20.04 in. x 36 in. Black Brock Paver Base Panel is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8.

It probably halved the amount of digging we would have had to do, so despite the expense it was worth it. This was our first attempt at installing pavers and the job turned out perfect. The pavers installed perfectly on the base, and after sealing the joints with polymeric sand they are extremely solid. All in all, we'd use them again, although the cost is pretty outrageous. Would hate to think what these would add to the cost for a larger job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved time and money Easy to use panels and better than all the digging. Once I compacted and leveled the ground the rest was easy. I called the manufacturer with a few questions and was transferred and someone actually answered the phone over the weekend. Now that's customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product This product made it easy to do my base. I did a 160 sq ft project in a weekend the doing my base was not the hardest part! It also made it easy to lay my pavers. I used 2 paver sizes and made it easy to slide and correct the pavers to match the pattern. It's really soft to kneel on too. We are thinking of doing a walkway and adding a fire pit this fall since it was not hard using hear panels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved time and my back Used these as the base for ~200 sq. ft. patio with 16" concrete pavers. I did the project mostly by myself and the panels saved 1-2 weekends of additional digging and transferring hundred of pounds of gravel base. These are extremely lightweight, yet sturdy, and were very easy to use. The one thing is that when you use larger pavers, you must be extremely careful leveling with sand (any uneveness will cause the pavers to rock). After six months (and half of a NJ winter) the patio has stayed firmly in place and still feels very solid.

Since these boards are made from styrofoam, they insulate the ground below. What happens is the less protected sides of the walkway will freeze and heave up an inch or so, while the better insulated middle of the path will stay flat. After two years of messing with them I tore them out, and just used 2 inches of sand over very hard packed soil. They lay flat, don't heave, and don't now wobble under foot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from more work with inferior results What a mistake using the panels pavers, patio looks like junk. I Have installed a few patio before with good results, I found the paver panels in Home depot and thought I would give them a try because the thought of moving piles of base rock in the FL sun is some thing I could do without. It is way more work using the panels and costs about 3 times more. After spending 200 for the panels and 54 for the landscape fabric for a 10x10 patio. The panels blow around in the wind, if there is any imperfections in the sand the pavers show it and there is no way to fix the problem with out pulling up the whole thing. In most things you get what you pay for but with this all you get is a big headache and black foam in your trash can.
