About This Product

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 expanded polypropylene 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 equals to 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
  • Panels are .68" Thick
  • Use for all paver and patio stone projects, small and large (foot traffic) for professional results, not for driveways
  • 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. 8" thermo-barrier
  • 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 equal number of panels
  • How much sand do you need, project sq. ft. / 12 equal number of bags (for 1/2 in. sand depth)
  • Takes all the hard work out of preparing project base

          What a concept! Laid a small 28" sidewalk along the driveway and this paverbase material made it quick and easy! I removed 3.5" of sod, tamped the soil, laid landscape fabric, 2" of paver sand, put down 10 PaverBase panels, laid the pavers, then added polymeric sand. Done! The most difficult part was cutting the pavers, which actually went well with a grinder and diamond blade. I'll use them again for the opposite side. I recommend that you consider these panels for your next paver project. You'll save time, labor, and money.

          Good product.
          These are very easy to layout. I installed larger pavers and the panels are definitely useful if you need to realign pavers without disturbing the sand base. They aren’t cheap, but in my application they were definitely worth the extra expense. I also like that you don’t need to install 4-6” of aggregate base. Wish I found this product sooner as I had already put my base material in. I would recommend this product.

          Sizing problems and pavers were still uneven.
          It says it will cover 100 sq ft but to get that you end up cutting a bunch of really small pieces and the leftover pieces you need to use don't interlock since they were cut on one end. It says you can step on them so we did but now the pavers are uneven. The leveling sand was even before we laid these down so my guess is after standing on them it made the sand below unlevel which led to the pavers being unlevel. Directions were horrible as well. It's hard to recommend this; I like that I didn't need nearly as many bags of rocks but this product was not as easy as it makes it seem.

            Easy patio install
            They are exactly as stated. The were easy to install and the patio was completed in no time by a single person. Make sure you have a sharp knife for trimming.
