The Expert Installation Process of Interlock Stone Pavers

 installation of stone pavers- Excavation

Step 2: Preparation First we mark out the location of the patio, walkway, or driveway. Client should call the utilities, phone company, and cable TV for locates before the start of the project.


Step 3: Excavation  The minimum required depth depending on your application will be excavated.  For walkways, a min. of 3" wider than the area. For driveways a min. of 6" wider than the area we are paving will be excavated.

Step 4: Base  The area filled with gravel, the base graded  as closely as possible to the final contour of the finished job. All installations sloped away from the house or building for drainage purposes. (Minimum 8' slope over every 10 feet) The gravel should be 3" below finished height.


Step 5: Screeding Pavers are laid on a 1" bed of coarse sand, placed directly on the compacted base. A 1" diameter pipe is used as a screeding guide on top of the gravel. We set up the guides so that your pavers are ľ" above the finished level to allow for compacting.

Step 6: Laying the Pavers The pavers are placed directly on the screeded bed of sand laying along the longest straight side. The Lines are kept straight  using string lines. This minimizes the cutting required


The lines of the pavers are square, 90° to each other, to fit properly when installing circles, fans, or a soldier course (a border of pavers around the perimeter of the area) we will place these first before installing the rest of the pattern.

Step 9: Compacting  After the installation is complete, including edge restraints, the pavers must be swept clean and then compacted with a plate compactor



Step 10: Finishing  Specially graded Unilock® Jointing Sand is swept into the joints between the pavers. This locks the pavers together creating a very durable surface. For additional protection from the penetration of weeds and insects, use Unilock® Polymeric Sand
