Cold climate - 6" of 3/4" minus, 2" stone dust, lay stone, sweep polymeric stone dust, lightly mist.

Also, be sure to use a layer of commercial duty geo-textile fabric UNDER the aggregate base.

no. for stability. and to keep aggregate from inter-mixing with sub-soil.

so it goes below stone dust then?


btw, the stone is called gosian stone, its a local rock out of mass.

Two questions:

1. How important is the geo-textile below the sub-base?

2. What do some of you more experienced guys think about using mason (paver) sand in joints between pavers?
I've heard several ways of doing things: poly sand, paver sand, and sweeping dry mortar mix..

Thanks for your input.
