    Anybody use this or another brand? Or has anybody actually used whole belgium block buried? I'd like to try one of these this year, this would definately appeal to someone who wants something different. I've seen them advertised in landscape design mags but they are always in Florida. I was watching Rock Solid on diy channel and saw this.

    They are much thinner than pavers. I would worry about product failure. Plus they are saying to lay them on the base. I didn't catch the psi strenghth on them. Similar?

    Meets or exceeds the following ASTM requirements:
    ASTM C 140 | ASTM C 67 | ASTM C 33 | ASTM C 150 | ASTM C 979 | ASTM C 1028-96

    MSDS Information.

    These are the specs. In the installation they say to use concrete sand. I don't see compressive strength, but one of these numbers might be that I do not know.
