You want to look for Mirafi 500X or US Fabrics US200 Geotextile fabric.

Just bought a full roll last month $ 300.00 + tax
Like everyone says its cheap insurance. Use it.

Too bad our climate wasn't like the south we could do three driveways with all the base we put in!

dont you look back now at pics 3 and 4 and ask yourself why the hell you put concrete pavers on top of all that? You did all that nice brick work, selected a nice bluestone tread stock, and then smoked a fatty and forgot where you left off.
that little job could have had a very clean, classic look had you only wet laid that walk with the brick. You could have done it in less time too. just my opinion, but you got too much material change going on and no unity. youll have more problems with what you did down the road, than if you had stayed within the box.

Is part of the reason you guys in Canada put the large rock and so deep for drainage codes in Canada? Are there some places you can only build with permeable pavers?

Not any code, just from experience we know what it takes to keep the pavement intact. Permeable pavers are becoming more popular, I remember quoting one job a few years back where there was buildings all around the driveway and really nowhere for the water to go, permeable pavement there was ideal. I sold the customer on the product but another contractor ended up with the work

Taking that fatty comment with a gain of salt, however the homeowner wanted those specific pavers. Not really what this thread is about so i would like your opinion on the geotex

Winners use geo-textile fabric.

Losers don't use geo-textile fabric.

So, do you wanna be like me, a winner, or do you wanna be like the 643 other patio guys on Long Island?

Find a building supplier in your area. Google works wonders for locating stuff.

End of story. Now go make money.

if you cant find a supplier for geo-textile fabric - try calling some of the manufacturers and ask them to help you find a supplier near you.
