Questions & Answers

How many bags for a 10x12 paver patio

I'm doing 4 inches of paver gravel and 1 inch sand leveling. How many bags of each will I need. Thank you
Asked by: Sal
You would need approximately 80 bags of paver base to achieve the 4" base and then 20 bags of 1/2 cu. ft. leveling sand to achieve the 1" depth.

How many do I need for a 20x60 patio?

Do I need sand or anything besides the pavers?
Asked by: Mary
20 x 60 is way too big to use bagged product. It will cost far more and take far more labor on your part than getting gravel and sand delivered by a dump truck to your driveway. Imagine having to lift 400 50 pound bags of gravel, and then 200 to 400 50 pound bags of sand. A wheel barrow and shovels full at a time will make that 20 tons of product a lot more manageable.

Can this product be used for backfill on a low, 30", retaining wall?

Can this product be used for backfill on a low, 30", retaining wall?
Asked by: jj
Thank you for your question. Drainage stone is a better backfill product because it allows for drainage, so we would recommend this product for backfill.

Can this be safe compacted base for outdoor fire pit to level metal fire ring?

Can this be safe compacted base for outdoor fire pit to level metal fire ring?
Asked by: Ranger
If it calls for sand as the base beneath the ring, then this is a sand material and should be fine. However keep in mind that this material is only recommended for use in paver applications.

I probably shouldn't be rating this Paver Base because we're NOT using it for it's intended purpose. We built a berm to sit our Budha fountain atop and wanted it to look like river rock (paver base). Once that was completed we added turquoise "go-in-the-dark" pebbles (yes, they actually worked) to look like water flowing out of the fountain into the water pond below. Thanks to the paver base, it all turned out exactly as planned. Now we're going to add white rock (from Home Depot) around the water pond below and do a few more final touches (feathery plantings, etc.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Easy to compact. I was limited in the depth I was able to put down due to coral rock, but I was able to compact 2 inches pretty easily. It leveled well and seems to be a good base for the patio.
