Product Overview

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. Not anymore. Brock PaverBase is a lightweight panel that replaces bag base and most of the sand used in the "old way" of doing things. Now you can build the patio or walkway of your dreams in a weekend without all the sweat and fatigue. Brock PaverBase offers many advantages over traditional project base construction.
  • Lightweight and durable material makes it easier, faster, and a better way to build your project base, and it costs less
  • Each 5 sq. ft. panel (1 lb.) replaces 4 bags of base (160 lbs.) (1 case = 20 panels, weighs 20 lbs. covers 100 sq. ft.)
  • 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
  • Digging out only 3 in. or less with Brock paverbase Vs. 6 in. to 8 in. with heavy bag paver base makes the job a lot easier
  • Patented product lifetime limited warranty
  • Product Height is .68
  • Use for all paver and patio stone projects (patios, walkways, pool decks, sitting walls, pillars, grills, small and large (foot traffic) for professional results, not for driveways. Can also use under turf.
  • Able to walk on panels while installing pavers and patio stones
  • High grade 100% polypropylene is proven as a construction material and provides lifetime stability for your patio
  • Use in All Climates (U.S and Canada) cold, hot and especially in freeze thaw regions
  • Channels and holes allow water to flow through the panel into the sand for drainage to avoid ponds on your patio
  • Medium density material is easy to install and cut with utility knife
  • Great for installing irregular shaped stones or multi paver patterns; you can move your pavers around with ease to match your pattern
  • Food grade material is environmentally safe, does not leech chemicals into the ground
  • How many panels do you need, project sq. ft. / 5 = number of panels
  • How much sand do you need, project sq. ft. / 12 = number of bags (for 1/2 in. sand depth)
  • Takes all the hard work out of preparing project base

No. Just no.
I'm not sure what me and the other guy from just a few days did wrong, but these panels are AWFUL! I've done a few walkways and patios previously with the old process of gravel, stone dust, and sand, and although it's time-consuming, I find these took more of my time because although the concept is good, the execution is horrendous! I had to dig out even more. They don't stay together well, and are overall cheap styrofoam boards that are expensive. When I was finally done wrestling with them and got them laid out, it looked awful. Just pulled them all up and have them boxed to be returned. I hope I get the $520 I spent for TWO boxes of these back because they are useless and I'm going back to the right way. This is a bad shortcut that added more work and time in the end. Awful.

    VERY happy with these. Absolutely worth the cost. Save time and energy! Less digging!
    We transformed out backyard with three projects and used the Brock PaverBase in each install. These allowed us to do the work entirely with only my wife and I doing the work. We could not be happier with the results. We were careful to do the base prep as instructed. We used crusher run and pipes to screed the sand to perfect level. Add a PaverBase, lay your pavers, install restraints, poly sand and DONE. The patio and sidewalk are absolutely as solid as poured concrete. I had such confidence that I used them to build a foundation for a "kit" fireplace as well. In this instance I did create a larger depth sub base and packed the substrate a lot. Was extremely careful to check level, I am convinced that the engineering that helps distribute the weight is pivotal to the success of this project as well. Our fireplace has not settled in the slightest. Our last project was a sidewalk and once again these created a super foundation for our pavers. Because we were going up a slight slope I am also convinced these helped create a perfect transition from bottom to top. One thing I did learn: Don't use a very heavy vibrating compactor in conjunction with these to settle your ploy sand like all the videos show to do. Hand tamp your pavers and back fill with needed poly. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product.

      If you got time to do it again, you have time to do it right.
      The Product is a little on the high side when it comes too price but it is definitely a quality product. I put these over pea gravel and paver sand.... I should say before this project I had paver stones directly on top of dirt. No longer do I have uneven stones but a level professional looking and soft in the feet patio to enjoy.

        The Brock Paver Base Panels are simply marvelous! They made my DIY patio project very clean and helped the bricks lay very tight! Because they are a specific size and fit together like puzzle pieces, they made planning the project much easier so that I knew how many bricks would fit in the 20x36" area of each panel. I have nothing but high praise for this product!

        I purchased six boxes of these paver base panels for a 20 x 24 brick patio based on an article in Home Handyman. The old patio had been installed incorrectly so I removed all of the bricks and cleaned them then re-installed them over these panels after packing and leveling the sand. The panels help provide a firm base to walk on. There is some tendency for the panels to move a bit so placing a brick or two on them until you're ready to install the pavers helps. Making sure the locking grooves are clear of sand also helps. I recommend this product because it speeds up installing a patio dramatically.

          Easy to use. Little pricey for what it is. Installed in late 2017 northeast Ohio. Saved us thousands since we did not commission a contractor. It meets our expectations ... going with phase 2 in the next couple weeks. Follow the install videos and your gut... You will be good. Don't be scared. https://youtu.be/Mv92RMD-oJ4

            I used these panels for installing my walkway. They made it so easy to get the bricks perfectly even. And, four years later, despite our cold Colorado winters and heavy spring rains, not a single brick is out of place. The stuff is so much lighter than the bags of sand it replaces. Now we're planning on doing our patio with these panels. So much better than the old fashioned, back breaking method.
