So I'm doing a circle bed in the run of my paver sidewalk. Right now I have my radius staked out to be approximately 15 feet from both outside edges of the sidewalk.

The last pic in this post is the circle bed.

The inside bed will be approximately 9 feet in diameter as the sidewalk will be 3 feet wide.

My question is, will I be able to curve a running bond with those dimensions, or am I going to run into problems with the gaps being too wide between the pavers if the radius is too tight.

Thanks for everyone's help with the questions I've had regarding this project.

What size of brick are you thinking of using. Anything around 6" or 8" would work fine. Gaps should be no more than 1/2" or so.

It's a 4 X 8 Whitacre clay paver.

Thanks for the reply.

Check the max. joint width on the bag if you are using polysand, some types allow for wider joints than others.

I didn't think of that, thanks for the heads up.
