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
  • Carry 100 sq. ft. of paverbase to back yard in minutes
  • 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

Can we put a pergola on top of the paver patio with the brock paver base?

Asked by Mateo June 15, 2021
1
Answer

Yes, you can use panels under patio with most pergolas. Some very heavy pergolas require footings. In this case, build around footer.

I want to level the ground to add an above ground pool. would this be enough, without the pavers?

Asked by bell June 2, 2021

Answers

I would think not. My brick patio has started to shift after 2 years with professional installation. I bet you need pavers above the base sheets

can I use these panels with porcelain pavers?

Asked by Johnny May 24, 2021

Answer

Yes you can use these for porcelain tiles, paving stones, natural flagstone, Turf, sheds and more.

Do you need to tamp the sand before you place the Brock Paver base on top?

Asked by Dan May 7, 2021
2
Answers

No, I don't think so. The sand is just used to level the surface. Don't forget your weedblock.

We are trying to add a play swing set in our backyard. Can we use this panel as the base for it?

Asked by CC May 1, 2021
2
Answers

Yes, you can use the panels for the base. Make sure to use paving stones over the panels were the polls will be. If you plan to cover the panels with much, sand or decorative stone, add an additional layer of fabric over the top of the panels. Questions, call PaverBase customer service (Tim) 813.431.8259

Can you use this as a base for a 4 ft retaining wall?

Asked by cden April 10, 2021

Answers

I would not use it for a retaining wall. If you are building a concrete block retaining wall you need to dig a trench and place the first course at least half underground on a compacted gravel base.

Can I use this product for a patio outside

Asked by Mark April 8, 2021
2
Answers

Yes, that is what they are made for. Unless you are meaning just lay these down and have a patio, then no. They slide all over the place, you have to put pavers on top of them.

Do you have edges for this paver. Means half cut to make straight edge. And how do you sell it

Asked by Fredie April 8, 2021
2
Answers

No

Does this come with the edge restraint that is mentioned in the instructions?

Asked by Lindsay April 8, 2021
4
Answers

No, you have to buy the edge restraint separately. I recommend putting the lip of the edge restraint under your pavers.

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.

So much easier than all the pea gravel we would have needed. It’s lightweight and even though it costs a little more than the gravel, the time we saved using these, plus the fact that we didn’t have to carry heavy bags and spread the stone. The patio looks beautiful.
