I have a Long driveway that is about 8,000 sqf. Actually there is nothing there yet but dirt. I want to use pavers and wanted to know what you put under the pavers for you base and if the base is expensive

12" of 23A stone mix compacted every few inches. 1" of 2NS sand screeded. Don't forget to use poly Techniseal sand in the joints and a good solid edging. We use BEAST from UNILOCK, some people like using concrete.
We do the same for driveways 12" base compacted in 2 inch lifts, we rent a much bigger compactor for driveway paver jobs. I dnot use concrete for edging but if you do get the geotextile coming up the side in between the pavers & the poured edge so if the concrete cracks the sand/aggregate doesnt escape thru the gap
