    Hey I'm getting some conflicting info on what to use for a paver patio base. Some people are saying Class 2 rock and others are saying Class 5. Whats the difference between the two and which would be better?
    Also, I've been told to use 4 in of base material. Is this enough?
    Thanks

    I like stone dust. Rent a mechanical tamper. Put down 6 inches, tamp it down to 2 or more. Repeat.
