  • Great for pavers, patios and other areas with foot traffic
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.

  • 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

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
As a professional installer I have not used these panels yet, but am doing some research. On the sand question.....The Interlocking Concrete Paver Institute standard for pavers is 1" to 1.5" of bedding sand. This product is claiming to only need a half inch underneath or an optional 1/2" also above each panel. If you were to eliminate the 1/2" above you are using less sand, but not removing the need for all of it. Sand is needed, but so is the requirement for perfect grading of the soils. As a professional installer we don't worry about the occasional hole caused by rocks removed in the subgrade. We fill those holes with qp or gravel, and never, ever, return soil to the excavation area or attempt to compact loose soils. It seems this product would actually be harder to use, for us anyway, in an attempt to get the base so perfectly flat and graded for water runoff with the rocky soil conditions we deal with daily which leaves an uneven soil base surface, even when using the most accurate excavation practices.

Can these support 2000 lbs of water in a 6’x10’ kiddie pool, on a paver patio?

Asked by: Dantheman
Yes you can absolutely use these panels, since the weight is equally distributed over the entire bottom surface.

Asked by: steve
Depends on your support and what they are connecting into. Certainly a single line would be a better "look", but without relevant structural details,, and whether there is a wall either side, hard to make a judgement.

20.04 in. x 36 in. Black Brock Paver Base Panel is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 107.

I just failed to take into account the total cost. Seems expensive at $2.40 a square foot but definitely labor saving.

My project was 75 sq. feet of functional space (garden hose etc) against the foundation of a 40-year old house. The soil was very hard and compacted. These panels eliminated additional excavation to add paver base. Following the directions, I excavated enough to account for the just the leveling sand, plus the depth of the panels and the pavers. The laying out of the pavers is much easier: you're kneeling on the panels, instead of trying to avoid disturbing the leveling sand/base (as well as the worry of pets disturbing the area). The foam material is easy on the knees. Setting/sliding the pavers into place is easy on the smooth surface of the panels. The videos available online were helpful. This was a summer 2017 project, so we'll see how it holds up through the freeze-thaw cycle. Overall, these panels saved a lot of work and made the final steps much easier.

Yes it replaces sand and perhaps is more stable and more cost effective, I simply don't know, but I also don't know how much this helped us in the project. One thing I did learn; leveling takes long long time. Puttin' down the blocks and the hydra sand is nothing (make sure you use spacers)...

The instructions provided including a short video made it easy to figure out what to do. The interlocking edges provided an easy way to lay it down. Cutting the panels were easy with a box cutter.

Lightweight, square and an easy joining system, these tiles could make laying tile a breeze. Unfortunately, for Us, our would be deck is out of square, and thus will require a less user friendly option.
