    we used 5in. compacted base, and will be using BEAST edge restraint.

    I wanted to go at least 6in. base but customer and stone supplier said it would be overkill, i disagree though:nono:

    Did you just use the sand as you went instead of covering the whole base first? I'm referring to Pics 3 and 4 in your second post of pics. Looks great by the way.

    Yes, I'm sure thats how he did it! You never want to put more sand down then you can get covered in a days time.


    Looks pretty good man!
