    Got to cut the gaps on the soilder course!!!

    There was only 1 job i did not cut the soilder course pavers. I did a walkway out of techo santorini and had some 1-1.25in gaps. I acctually looked worse to cut the pavers due to the texture of the pavers.

    Screenings is an improper setting bed material. It does not allow for the seating of the pavers during the initial compaction. This does not allow for proper interlock. Thus leaving your flatwork open to horizontal migration. Second, screenings are not graded properly. Screenings have too many fine particles and the larger particles are flat and brittle. Areas with constant traffic or vehicular applications will fail or rut as the pieces break down. Also, screenings drain very poorly. In summation, if you are concerned about the longevity of your work, my advice would be to switch to washed sand.
