Freezing temps and heave?

Where part of my market is located the freeze line ins approx 4-6 feet deep..meaning that even if you could excavate the ground during the winter months, it would be frozen.

My question is this (keep in mind I am unfamiliar with the installation process of pavers or your product)

If you install the product in an area such as this, will there be heaving and cracking of the sub-base?

Im assuming that since cement and asphalt is installed year-round here that your greens could be as well....any insight?

We have hundreds of greens installed in Michigan where they have the freeze/thaw issue.

Instead of using a 4 inch compacted crushed stone base, use a 6 to 8 inch base.

The drainage of the turf is off the top the green and not through it. This helps from letting moisture get to the base.

Call me with any questions 800-334-9005
