Paver Walkway Concrete Paver Walkways, like the Paver Patios, are becoming more and more popular each year. They are a really affordable way to create walkways on your front and back yard for a fraction of what it would cost to make it with stone.

Lets review some of the installation pointers. These pavers are usually installed on compacted CR6 or Gravel, which means that if any piece were damaged or moved by any reason, it would only take minutes to replace and install the new piece.
But this also works the other way. Since they are installed without any cement, the installation must be done carefully to ensure the longevity of the project.

For sidewalk applications, make sure that the base of the pavers is at least 4" thick and make sure that it is well compacted!! Any slack on the base would result on a walkway that could become uneven in a matter of months.
After the base is set, a thin layer of fine sand would be installed on top to level out the area. The thinner the layer, the better.
Finally, the pavers will sit on top of this layer to provide a finished floor for the paver walk.

There are some other items to have in mind, such weed barriers (to avoid the base from growing vegetation), edging and spikes (to keep the pavers in place) or polymeric sand (which is a key component to a longer lasting patio that almost NO contractor wants to install!)
Make sure to request to have those items installed on your patio as well!
