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
Your confusion will be cleared by watching the video. Sand is required as a leveling agent. Do not use soil to level. Yes, It replaces gravel, by way of not even mentioning gravel. Gravel requires Machine compacting. Doesn't age well.

Sand used?

Is there a special sand to use? I live in the desert and am building an 8x10' covered patio. Can I use sand excavated from my yard/sifted of debris or do the pavers sit directly on top of this once the ground is compacted and leveled then add polymetric for the joints? thanks!
Asked by: DP
We used regular paver leveling sand on top of the compacted soil, with the paver base panels on top of the sand. After using polymeric sand to seal the joints our walkway is extremely solid.

can you use paver base panels as a base for artificial grass

can you use paver base panels as a base for artificial grass
Asked by: latex73
The panels have not been tested and approved for artificial grass but many customers have used it. Those who have used it used long spike to hold down and put a top fill on top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't really give a rating based on performance, as this... Can't really give a rating based on performance, as this item is more of a long-term installation. That is the main reason why I gave 4/5 stars. As far as installation and handling ease, that went well. The individual panels are very light. They are easy to measure and cut (I used a box cutter). Score them as you would a piece of Plexiglas, put the cut edge against a table edge (for support), and apply pressure to each side. It was harder getting the surface underneath level/smooth than it was laying these panels. Time will tell whether the completed project will remain in place and level.

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.

It could not possibly be better than traditional methods. Due to advancing age and wanting to do it myself I decided to try it. I laid a 40 ft. walkway with 16 in. pavers. It's been through a hot summer, cold winter and drenching spring rain and the blocks have not shifted, settled or heaved. I have to to give it a thumbs up.

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.

It went down very quickly and provided a stable base. Cutting with a utility knife was easy. The patio has been in for a month or so and shows no sign of movement. Good product!
