When you're building a patio out of pavers, how do you know how high to build up the bedding sand? I built a landing in front of my front stairs out of pavers approximatly 6feet x6 feet, and I had some larger edging stones going around them(like a U shape). I built up the gravel inside so that the pavers would be flush with the edging stone. How do you guys skeed the 1inch of sand so that it would meet flush with an edging stone. Once you tamp the pavers, they would settle, so I wasnt really sure how to do this. I ended up laying down my sand, then I individually leveled each small brick, which was a major pain the ass and took me forever, and was very frustrating. Plus i think its unlevel in one place, so that is driving me crazy. I was just wondering how the pros do it.
