At Heyes Landscaping, construction is done RIGHT.
The depth of excavation will depend on two factors:
- The type of soil in the area. Clay soil will require deeper excavation and sandy soil will require less.
- How your paver service will be used. Heavy loads like driveways and retaining walls require deeper excavation. Light outside patios and walkways require less.
Once the excavation is complete, the area will be filled appropriately. The base will be determined by the intended use of space.
- We need to determine that the chosen base can handle the load of whatever is being placed on the surface.
- We need to ensure it is free draining so that water does not pool, and we need to make sure that it’s compacted in several layers using the proper equipment. This ensures it won’t move out of place with the freeze and thaw cycles in our four seasons.
The next phase of construction is a layer of sand or small stone aggregate.
- The right bedding material installed correctly directly affects the performance of your stone of choice. This includes interlocking, natural stone, retaining walls or whatever you choose to use.
- It not only provides a nice smooth surface for stone to sit on, it also allows water to drain through quickly to the gravel base.
Retraining the Edge and Jointing the spaces:
This is the finishing stage of your project.
- Edge restraint can be done in many ways. A special concrete can be added along the edge of your patio to set it into place and adhere to the stone. Pre-made edging can be installed with long metal spikes along the sides of the brick.
- Finally, a special sand is brushed into the spaces between the pavers which helps lock the pavers into place. Often polymeric sand is used which requires water to help activate it into a cement like substance.
