Here’s what we’re doing to prepare the ground in detail
Earthwork around the area where the interlocking paving stones will be installed
The first step is to level the ground around the area where the interlocking paving stone will be installed. To do this, we use our own specialized equipment to level the ground and create a trough around the installed area.
This gives the pavers a firm footing and prevents them from sinking or sliding into each other when subjected to weight. It also preserves the aesthetics of the pavers by keeping them in line with each other when they are installed.
Level the floor to make it flat and even
This is an effective base layer that supports the weight of the pavers and fixes them firmly in place, while preventing damage caused by soil movement. Layers should be added one at a time, and each layer firmly tamped with a hand tamper or plate compactor until flat and compact.
Constant levelling and compaction of each layer as it is added will give a smoother appearance.
Add gravel or fine sand to the surface, in thick, compacted layers
This creates a solid, level base for the pavers, ensuring that they remain perfectly positioned, even in the event of impacts or numerous climate changes.
To make these layers as effective as possible, we use materials of similar size, which are then carefully compacted for maximum durability.
Install additional drainage if necessary to prevent the build-up of stagnant water
To ensure a solid foundation, additional drainage may be required to prevent the accumulation of standing water. If necessary, an approved underlayment will be installed under the pavers to direct surface water away from the property. This will prevent water from accumulating on the pavers, enabling them to retain their structural integrity for many years to come.
Install interlocking paving stones on the prepared foundation
We pay attention to detail to ensure that each paver rests correctly and follows the contours to create an aesthetically pleasing end result. We take care to level each paver, cut it with a water saw if necessary, and make sure there are no gaps between pavers.
