I'm expanding our driveway from one side for a 16", does this good as a base under a brick and tolerate the loads from cars driving over it?
Asked by: Heba
It is a good sub base for that project, just make sure that the brick that you use is vehicular rated though. Thank you for your inquiry!

Using for my first project. Do we need to water and stomp when laying this paver base. How much water is required. Is this sticky and bonded together ...
Asked by: Rao
I don't recommend water at all unless you want to water it after tamping/packing. I found that there was a lot of clay in the mix and it started to clump together on the bottom of my tamper and on my feet and was getting big gouges in it. It feels like a wetting after it is completely leveled and tamped would help bond it together though.

I want to just use this product by itself to fill in areas of a "BASE" driveway in the country. I will not be putting anything over it. Will this be a good product to fill in areas of a partially muddy, country driveway?
Asked by: Cyndie
I wouldn’t use it for that.

0.5 cu. ft. Paver Base is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 172.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great with Leveling Sand Had an area with no grass that we wanted to add a paver patio. I initially leveled the existing dirt and sand area out and watered the heck out of it for a week to ensure the existing material had compacted. I then added 2" of the Step 1 Paver Base and ran a plate compactor over it two times in each direction. I then added an additional 2" of the Step 1 Paver Base, and ran the plate compactor again over it twice, in both directions. It is really important that you ensure there are no high or low spots (I kept it under 1/4"). I then placed a stick of 1" PVC Pipe along one edge of the area, and another 8' away. I then added 1" of the Leveling Sand between the PVC, and then pulled a very straight 2x4 along the two pipes (called screeding) to create a smooth, level surface. I repeated this until the entire area had been completed. Was then just a matter of placing down the pavers, adding the border to keep everything secure, and swept some PermaSand in the joints, got it wet, and the patio looks incredible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not sure why there are so many negative reveiws... So I bought this product instead of buying a truckload of limestone base material. Guys... this product is exactly perfect for creating a good solid base layer so i’m not really sure why all the negative complaints... it is the perfect size gravel to level just about any area. If yall watch some youtube videos on how to install pavers you’ll see that this material goes UNDER EVERYTHING ELSE. In other words this is the first layer after you excavate your area. It IS NOT SCREED SAND. Once you spread this layer into your area it has to be plate compacted. Or compacted with a hand tamp. Worked great for me and was a decent alternative to buying a yard/pile of limestone material from a landscape company.
