Product Overview

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. The panels are made from highly durable Polypropylene and carry a lifetime guarantee, meaning it will last as long as your home will. The panels are engineered to give you a flat, stable and long lasting base for pavers or patio stones.

You can stack pavers, tools and everything else you need right on the PaverBase area, so there is less damage and care needed as when compared to a prepared sand and stone base.

This stuff is just as expensive as 4" of paver base; I guess the money saved is cost of labor?

I plan on doing the work myself so I'm not saving any money on labor. I'm just digging 3" down instead of 4. Why is this stuff so expensive?

Answer: 
You are saving time and money on labor and material costs. Panels and 1/2" leveling sand cost less than bag base and 1" of leveling sand. You either dig 3" for panels and sand or 6" to 8" for bag base and sand.
These panels make it easier to do the base the right way.

Answer: 
Actually the panels should cost less than bag base and you use 1/2 the amount of sand, so there are material cost savings and not really expensive when you consider the base prep (labor) is so different. With Brock panels you dig down about 3" (1/2" sand, 68" panel, paver/patio stone thickness. The traditional old way you dig down 6" to 8" (4" base, 1" leveling sand and paver/patio stone thickness).

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?

Answer: 
Paver projects require a 4" base and leveling sand for long lasting results.
Each PaverBase panel (1 lb.) replaced 4 bags base material (160 lbs.).
Brock way only requires 1/2" of sand compared to 1" of sand for the old traditional way.

Answer: 
Each PaverBase panel (equals 4" base) and replaces bag base. You only use 1/2" of all purpose leveling sand vs 1" leveling sand needed for traditional base prep.
Compact and level ground, lay good quality landscape fabric (to hold in sand), add 1/2" sand, compact sand and recheck to make sure level (no high or low spots), then lay panels, pavers and edge restraint (to hold pavers together.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 14, 2016
