Preparing The Area For Your New Brick Or Paver Installation

Preparation is a huge (the most important) part in building a great looking, long lasting brick or paver feature into your landscape.  This includes excavating the area you’d like the brickwork installed so we can then bring in the proper base material and properly grade the area.  Once we’ve laid the base down it can be compacted to minimize any material settling that will occur.  When material settles your paving stones can sink and move around, which can make your investment look horrible.  Spending the extra time on the site preparation will prevent the new pavers from shifting and ensure you have a great looking hardscaped area for years to come.

Preparing The Area For Your New Brick Or Paver Installation

Preparation is a huge (arguably the most important) part in building a great looking, long lasting paver landscaping feature.  If the groundwork isn't completed properly before installing the pavers you're going to be unhappy with the results.

At COMPANY NAME we take the time to ensure our paver installations are completed to the manufacturers specifications.  This ensures your new paver landscaping looks great, lasts a long time, and the pavers can qualify for the manufacturers warranty.

How Do We Prepare Your Ground For Pavers?

Installing paver patios, driveways, and walkways isn't rocket science but there are some very specific steps and processes that separate the good installations from the poor installations.

Step #1.  The first thing we need to do is measure and mark the area where your pavers will be installed. Using a string line and stakes to mark the perimeter of the area, and spray paint or flags to mark the locations of any corners, curves, or other features.

Step #2.  We will need to remove any existing vegetation or debris from the area so we have a clean slate. We then need to excavate the area to the desired depth for your specific pavers and the base materials we'll be using.  This can vary depending on the pavers being used and other factors.

Step #3.  Excavate the area to the desired depth. The depth of the excavation will depend on the thickness of the pavers and the height of any surrounding surfaces, such as a patio or walkway. Be sure to allow for the thickness of the base material and any sand or other materials that will be used to level the surface.

Step #4.  We need to add base materials to the excavated area.  This usually consists of a layer of crushed gravel followed with a later of sand.  The gravel helps to establish solid footing for the pavers and provide drainage, while the sand provides a level surface that easily be adjusted as we install the pavers.  Each layer must be compacted using hand tampers or a machine tamper to prevent future settling.

Step #5.  We then install any necessary edging. Edging, such as metal or plastic strips, is used to hold the pavers in place and to define the edge of the paver area. Edging is installed around the perimeter of the paver area and is secured with stakes or other fasteners depending on the paver manufacturer.

Step #6.  Install the pavers. We begin at one corner of the paver area and work our way outward, laying the pavers in a pattern that is consistent with your design. We use a rubber mallet to tap the pavers into place, and we use a level to ensure that the pavers are level and even.  We can adjust the base layer as necessary to ensure everything is level.

As you can see, by spending the extra time on site preparation, you're getting a superior installation that will last and look good for many years to come.

So You Want A New Paver Patio?  Here's How Our Paver Landscaping Process Works

  • We start with our initial consultation.  We come out to your property and view the area for your potential project.
  • We determine the actual surface area of your project and what is going to be needed for materials including the base and the actual pavers.
  • We take into account any specific challenges your property might pose for our team such as poor access, poor drainage, and other issues we may need to work around.
  • We consult with you on the specific type and style of pavers you’d like to use as we have several options available to us.
  • 2D designs can be provided upon request and an additional design fee.
  • We’ll provide you with an accurate written estimate for the work.

The amount of work required for this type of landscaping project can vary greatly from property to property dependent on many factors. The slope of your property, existing site and soil conditions, drainage, size and scope of the project, the particular materials being used, and your budget will all be considered. We’ll be able to offer you an accurate estimate only after an initial site visit and material consultation.

We brought them on last fall for fall clean up. They did a great job then so we brought them back now for spring clean up, hard raking of the grass and putting down 22 cubic yards of natural mulch. All this work was completed in two days. Their cleaning up afterwards last year and now is fantastic! All of the employees are kind, courteous and great to work with! When you bring them out for an estimate, you will get a fair price for a task well done!
