Question concerning Patio base for Stonehenge and or ConcreteChris, but all are welcome to answer. I am presently getting ready to lay my pavers over my base after following both of your recommendations using ¾- and what here they call grit instead of sand. I have already laid down 6 of ¾- in 2-3 inch increments packed down with vibrator and then 2 of the grit/fines, also vibrated down. My question is, do you suggest laying the pavers on top of packed grit or to lay another layer of grit/fines not compacted and tap pavers down with rubber mallet before sweeping with grit/fine to fill voids and then vibrating the whole patio to set? If I do go with 1 loose grit over the already packed grit, leveled using 1 conduit. At what point do you recommend I install the plastic paver edging? Would that be on top of the packed grit and then add the loose grit or after. I have not seen this issue addressed in any of the previous positing I have read. I closing let me say I have been reading this forum for over 4 years and while I am not in the landscaping or hardscape business, I have found this forum very enlightening and an unlimited source of information. I would like to thank all you posters for the wealth of information I have gained from you all and good luck with your businesses. Plus my lawn looks terrific because of you all. I apologize if I should not have posted my question here and should have been in the homeowner location.
