I have never made a paver patio before, but I am interested in making one for my backyard. I have been reading about it on a couple of threads and I think I have the procedures down, someone give me some reassurance though: 1. Excavate and level ground. Use a plate compactor to compact before laying gravel/sand. 2. 3" Gravel, level and compact 3. 1" Sand, level and compact 4. Install plastic edging around area of patio...where do I get this is Raleigh, NC? 5. Put pavers down, sweep leveling sand into cracks until full. Anything different or need to be changed? Thanks.
