Outline the area of your garden, front yard or backyard where you want the paving to be done. Use garden hose or string for outlining and drive stakes to ensure that the outline stays still in the place and you get clean corners.

Retaining Walls Adelaide

Scope the slope

Nobody wants water pooling on their Paving Adelaide side and to avoid this, you need to carefully plan the slopes. It’s crucial that the paving is slightly above the surface of the garden. Start from the highest point, which is typically a point right at the bottom of your front door or closest to the house.

Installation Area Excavation

The total of the sand, depth of the base, and pavers are how much deep you need to excavate the area.

Compact the base

Normally, the base material is all crushed stone and rusted with irregular pointed edges. Therefore, you need to compact the area properly.  It’s essential that the base be well-compacted. Repeat this step until you have the required depth.

Edge Restraints Installation

These restraints will help you to hold a specific shape of the paving area for years. You can use plastic, aluminum, or steel restrainers around the perimeters and secure them into the ground with sharp spikes.

Layer it down with sand

Sand provides a stronghold to your pavers. Layer it with coarse sand and then screed it until it becomes smooth to an even depth of 2.54cm but not greater than 3.821cm.

Lay the pavers

Lay pavers at 90o corner. Make sure that the pavers are in a straight line. Avoid sliding and kicking the pavers as it can mismanage your entire paving placement. Make sure that you leave at least 1.58mm-3.175mm space between each paver.

Compact the pavers

Tamp the paver in the sand with the help of a plate compactor. Once you have installed all the pavers, run the plate compactor and ensure that each paver is tightly pressed into the sand.

Sweep the sand

Sweep the excess sand into the joints to give a clean and fine finish.
