They are on 4" cinder blocks. The blocks were leveled then the rocka steps were glued down to them. Its very hard to level the rocka steps on there own because they are textured, using the cinder blocks insures that the rocka steps will be level.

What determines when your boss has you guys use the big weber vs the "little" wacker ? ( i just assume it's about a 3050 or 3545) I see in one pic they are both on the drive together,

Well, nothing really, those are our two main compactors, one for each of our two crews. When were doing a driveway, permeable project or a really big patio we will use the weber exclusively. But we use the weber even for 100sf walkways. Obviously we try and use the bigger compactor on the bigger jobs. A bigger compactor is one of the biggest money MAKING purchases you can make. Yes, money making. The weber CR8 has centrifugal force of 16,650 lbs, its really nice to be able to compact 6"-8" of base properly, in one lift. And yes the wacker is a 3050.

Thanks...I think the 3050 might be 6700 lbs ...so you have no problems using it for a driveway? & Do you guys..or anyone reading this , go to the extent to take proctor density readings?

No no problems using it for a driveway. You just have to do proper lift thicknesses. Heck, you could use wacker 1550 for a driveway, its just going to take you a lifetime. No we dont take proctor density readings. We mostly do residential work so its usually not warranted. But we have bid on commercial jobs where it was required.
