run geotextile under your gravel base and up the side of the concrete. This will keep the paver system contained. I always see pavers up to concrete and they always settle. The water gets between the 2 systems and settles the gravel under the concrete (I guess concrete guys dont compact as much as paver guys. I have seens some throw 6 inches and run the compactor once over the top) then the sand and gravel from your paver system washes in to fill that void. I have repaired jobs that have had the whole 6cm paver wash under the concrete. You can use an adhesive to keep the geo on the concrete edge to make it easier to throw gravel down and compact. Just be sure to keep the geo tight
