Have another question about brick edging... I tried something different (for me) on the last patio we installed. We brought our compacted #411 base up to where we needed to be and then installed the brick edging and then installed the bedding course (use several 1" gas pipes to set final bedding course grade and a 2x6 board). My question is this - when you bring up the #304 or #411 base (or what have you) to the finish grade for the bedding course - how do you make sure you're level across the area before you put down the brick edging? Do you do screed off the final lift and then tamp before you install your bedding course? The transit only checks spot grades and using a 3' rake we can get mostly to grade by using transit measurements, but we still have some imperfections in our grade which caused us to dig into our base to set our 1" pipes a bit or raise them up adding more bedding course than I should have used - providing an inconsistent bedding course in some places. Any other suggestions for screeding and setting brick edging?
