Questions & Answers

How many bags would I need to do an area 12' x 4' with a depth of 2 inches? I am going to be using the 12 x 12 Patio Stones.

It would be helpful if Home Depot had a calculator for this stuff on the website like they do for buying bags of mulch.

Why not use 80-90lb concrete mix and pound it flat. It will cure from the normal ground moisture. Then add leveling sand prior to laying the pavers.

This would be much less costly and still provide adequate base for a patio or sidewalk.
Asked by: Dvol
Firstly, concrete changes soil Ph as it is very alkali. Changing soil Ph can adversely affect some plants chosen for for the garden. An increase in alkalinity can also change the Ph of the nectar secreted by the flowers and possibly make it unpalatable or toxic to nectar feeders. Secondly, concrete produces an impervious surface that does not permit water to soak into the soil but rather causes it to run off which can result in erosion

What is the best method to level the ground?

I have sloping land. I want to add a retaining wall to decrease the slope as much as possible and make a path where the ground levels off. Do you use a water line and bucket to level the path area or is there an alternative way that is better? I read a review regarding leveling before laying the pavers. I understood the reason for watering but did not follow using PVC pipes and a 2x4 to level the paver sand? Did they level the land before laying the paver sand? Any advice woukd be appreciated.
Asked by: BostonMichelle
I've watched professional patio installers use a 2x4 to level the base many times. The length of the 2x4 helps create a more even and uniform base than if you tried to use a smaller device. If you use a smaller device, the pressure applied is more uneven because it covers less surface. It would leave hills and valleys. The 2x4 is either pulled or pushed in front of where the contractor is kneeling to create a large flat area. A PVC pipe would do the same thing if it's long enough. I've tried this myself when laying base under paving stone and it works very well.

0.5 cu. ft. Gray Paver Base is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 90.

Some bags were great and exactly as expected. Others had a lot of big rocks in them that I had to remove. Fortunately I could use those rocks for other parts of my project. Some bags had "junk" in them. Things like pieces of wood, cloth, plastic, and in one bag I found a glove. These are reasons why this product is average.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not sure why there are so many negative reveiws... So I bought this product instead of buying a truckload of limestone base material. Guys... this product is exactly perfect for creating a good solid base layer so i’m not really sure why all the negative complaints... it is the perfect size gravel to level just about any area. If yall watch some youtube videos on how to install pavers you’ll see that this material goes UNDER EVERYTHING ELSE. In other words this is the first layer after you excavate your area. It IS NOT SCREED SAND. Once you spread this layer into your area it has to be plate compacted. Or compacted with a hand tamp. Worked great for me and was a decent alternative to buying a yard/pile of limestone material from a landscape company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The large rocks it contains are critical! The larger size rocks this stuff contains are needed to add "beef" to your base material and without them, all you have is large size sand and you end up with nothing. The sand isn't really sand but is fine crushed concrete that surrounds and sticks to the larger pieces to form a solid base. The guys who are giving this product a bad review because of the large size pieces don't have a clue what they are doing. I use 90% base (step 1) and just a little sand on top (1/4 inch or so). Then that baby is solid! Spray it with water and this stuff hardens up like a brick. Super strong base for pavers or anything else that needs support.

In Pavestone's defense it doesn't say it is gray anywhere on the package, and in most applications it probably doesn't need to be. The label is gray, but the product is tan-ish red.

I so regret not considering the ratings and buying this stuff. it is one of those moments, me thinking that I would figure it out even if others did not. So here I am warning you. Do not buy this stuff. So many big stones in it, it messes up the leveling and even the sand above it. The only way you may be happy with is you use professional and heavy duty compactor and can hammer those stones down. if you are a DIY person like me, you will regret buying this stuff.

It moves around a lot even after running a compactor over it several times. It also took twice as much of the product than the chart on the bags say it should take. After a week or so it started to settle and holds the pavers ok.

There were lots of big rocks, that would not allow to compact easily and I have to put extra effort to create a layer of 3-4 inches, mix of the rocks in the bags should be more even, the price was also high after I found more options to achieve same result.
