    Hey guys, I was just called upon to make an estimate for a paver job. I have never quoted a hardscape job and have a few questions. This is being done in the Chicagoland area. The project is for 800 square feet, along both sides of a driveway. How deep does the base need to go? (to avoid any...

    Hello, I am sad and embarrassed to say that I made serious judgement error. I installed about 7-8 inches of CR6 and it rained (poured unexpectedly) after the CR6 was in. I waited almost a week for it to dry and then compacted it with a std 3500 lb rented compactor. I realize it was too much...
