Check out a few YouTube videos for how to correctly install a paver patio. If you want a patio that will endure, you’ll want a solid base so the stones don’t shift. There are several steps to achieving this is one of them. I did a large patio and had crush and run delivered in bulk. This product is just small bags of that. While you’re out there digging, you might as well put in some French drains. Get day rental equipment to make it so much easier. We used a corrugated French drain pipe with a sleeve around it, filled with styrofoam ‘stones’. It’s working really well. Have fun with your project!
Enough to do a large area with plenty left over- see manufacture for more details
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.
