Setting Paver Pitch

The initial step in installing a paver driveway is assessing the level of your property. This is the most critical step in determining the height of your new paver construction project, as it will influence all subsequent stages.

Once we establish our starting height, we will add a “pitch” to the pavers, typically 1/8th inch for every 1 foot, sloping away from your home. This ensures proper water runoff and prevents the driveway from feeling like a ramp. While aesthetics are important, functionality is equally prioritized. The actual pitch will vary based on layouts.

Excavation Phase: Removal of Soil

With the heights set, our crew can begin excavation and access the soil type. Knowing the site soil type and drainage properties will help determine excavation and base depth. We access each driveway project individually so each client gets the best base scenario for cost, value, and performance.

Depending on the soil, we will excavate 8-16 inches from the height of our stringline, carting away all the excavated soil. Once the soil is removed, the crew will verify the heights one last time before compacting the ground to help prevent settling.

Setting Up to Lay Pavers

Once the sand is prepared, we can set up our square lines. When laying pavers, the joints between each paver form bond lines, and it’s important to ensure the walkway is aligned squarely with your home or any other designated stationary structure in the area. This approach adheres to proper construction etiquette and is visually appealing. Our team is trained to lay the pavers first, followed by the borders, to achieve the best results.

Final Stages

Next, we add a form of edge restraints around the exposed perimeter of the paver driveway. This edge acts as a restraint to prevent the pavers from shifting out of place. To fill in the joints between the pavers, we use polymeric sand.

In this process, the sand is swept into the joints, and after proper installation, tampering, and adding water, the sand hardens to a solid finish. This helps lock out weeds and keeps the pavers securely in place.
