An interlocking paver system is comprised of several components. First, is the compact subgrade, which is simply the existing compacted soil excavated to the appropriate elevation and followed by a layer of geotextile fabric. Second, is the compacted base material, which consists of compacted gravel ranging in a depth of 4 to 12 inches depending on the application. Third, is a layer of bedding sand, which holds the pavers from below Fourth, are the actual pavers. The entire perimeter is then surrounded by an edge
restraint and joint sand is swept into cracks. The entire area is then compacted again to produce a hardscape that is far more durable than any asphalt, concrete or mortared stone hardscape.

Landscape pavers are a great choice for a hardscape material for a number of reasons. Landscape pavers are designed to be fluid hardscapes, pavers are extremely durable and able to disperse weight better than concrete or mortared stone. So, under extreme weight a landscape paver will distribute the weight to its gravel base rather than crack. If a paver does crack or is damaged, only the single paver must be replaced as opposed to the entire hardscape. In situations where tree roots and soil shifting would crack conventional concrete or mortared stone work, landscape pavers will simply move with the soil. It is also easier to repair this damage than with concrete or mortared stone. Instead of replacing
the entire cracked area, landscape pavers are removed, the damage base is adjusted and the pavers are then placed back onto the repaired base. There is no need to purchase new pavers.
