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

Can this be used as a sub base for artificial turf instead of crushed aggregate?

Asked by: ches
It should work if you secure it with landscape pins and add fill to keep the turf down.

20.04 in. x 36 in. Black Brock Paver Base Panel is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 62.

Way too expensive in my opinion, however, these bases made my DIY paver project SO MUCH EASIER. We have a cement slab we wanted to cover and extend. The original plan was to only use the bases for the extension, but after laying pavers just in sand that was put over the cement slab, we found spacing was more difficult, some pavers would rock when stepped on, and I was constantly "fixing" the sand before laying every single stone. Finally gave up, picked up the pavers we had lain, and spent the money for more paver base panels to cover the slab. Best decision. The pavers sit perfectly level, tight together, laid a heck of a lot faster, and the patio is lovely. It was more than we wanted to spend, but we found the extra cost to be worth it with the final results.
