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.

I have an 18 foot diameter circle of sand where I removed and above ground pool this year. Can I lay these panels on top

Asked by: Joe
as long as the sand has something firm under it so that it will not sink and the sand is level then it should work, I had a couple of dips that I did not notice and had to try and lift the edge and fill. These are easy to cut the edges

I have a concrete slab, can I just top it with Brock paver panel then the paver blocks?

Asked by: Dan
The paver panels still require a layer of sand atop before setting the pavers. You might be able to just use paver edgers, sand and the pavers on top of the slab. Also, the panels use landscaping spikes to secure to the surface, I believe they are made for non-paved surfaces to level out the ground.

The base panels were placed atop ground cloth on dirt and grass surface. The area was slightly unlevel but less than 1 inch in all directions. The panels fit together easily and were also easy to trim to desired sizes. Long yard spikes were used to secure the base panels to the ground and each other. Paver edging was then secured atop the base panels using 8-inch plastic spikes. Sand and pavers were then set in-place. This product saved alot of time for setting the pavers.

A little pricey maybe, but the results were worth it for my project. I was retrofitting an existing "pavers on sand" sidewalk. I had to remove the pavers and underlying sand to get to an underlying drainage pipe. When I reassembled the paver walk, I wanted it to have better drainage (water will drain through these panels) and look better. So I replaced the sand and crushed gravel with slightly compacted pea gravel and these Base Panels. Much neater, more stable, and the pavers fit together better thanks to the more level and solid underlying Base surface. When you place pavers on the Base, they want to stay put, better than on compacted sand. If only they had been around when I constructed the (much larger) paver patio 10 years ago!
