Stored pavers outside against back of house last summer into fall then moved these into cellar over winter (in fine shape) for use in spring when a delayed front portico didn’t allow us to do brick edging and replant front garden last year.
Unfortunately, weeds in between stone patio is unavoidable. However, you can control how much weed you get and the frequency that comes out. I laid down two layers of garden weed fabric first then I used the Paver Base of top of it to level my patio stones and that has worked pretty well. I still get a weed here and there but nothing a Roundup sprayer can't handle. Hope this helps
Since it's sand, it would be ok to use under a slab only as a final base to help level and smooth before you pour the concrete. However, it's not really necessary to have that smooth a surface under the concrete slab. For a concrete slab, you should compact the soil, then place some crushed rock, tamped in place an d reasonably graded to control the thickness. How much and how deep a base of crushed rock you use depends on the usage of the slab (loading on the slab). This product, called a paver base is used to help get a level surface when placing multiple individual paver stones. A poured concrete slab seeks it's own level surface, so the concern is just good support base. For small concrete slabs, like a walkway, I have used sand similar to this paver base sand to control the thickness of the final slab, but it was over compacted soil and crushed rock.
83.52x83.52x3 = 20926.8 cubic inches. 20926.8 / 1728 = 12.11 cubic feet. Each bag of paver base is 0.5 cubic feet so that is 25 bags.
It looked like they just threw a bunch of items (rocks, wood, etc) into a grinder. I purchased 15 bags of this and had at least 1 full bag of debris I had to throw away (large chunks of wood and big rocks). Would not recommend this brand.
Depends on how thick a layer of base you want. For the area you have, you should need about 100 bags for each 1 inch of depth. Depending on the application I would do 2 inches (200 bags) to no more than 4 inches (400 bags).
Definitely not! This isn't as fine as the picture shows. It looked like they just threw a bunch of items (rocks, wood, etc) into a grinder. I purchased 15 bags of this and had at least 1 full bag of debris I had to throw away (large chunks of wood and big rocks). Would not recommend this brand.
I don't know what they use under artificial turf, something that drains, so I don't really know if this would work.
It is best to actually contact the store by phone, ask for their garden department to check the status of the step 1 paver base. In the midwest we have not had a problem with the supply of this item.
Assuming you will need about 3 inches of depth that would take approximately 20 bags according to my sq ft to cubic feet calculator.
