How to Make Paver Blocks

VIDEO (CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE)

Install Paver Blocks

Remove sod

Excavate the installation area to approximately 6" larger on all sides than the actual finished size.

Prepare & compact base

Lay landscape fabric. Install paver base and compact to a finished thickness of 4" for patios and walkways and 8" for driveways. Paver base should be installed in 4" increments Prepare the base by firmly compacting the soil. Place 2" of paver base and thoroughly compacted.

Screed sand

Layout 1" diameter pipe on base. Pour 1" of play sand over compacted base. Screed the play sand by dragging a 2"x4". Level the surface in both directions with a level board over pipe.

Install paver edge

Install paver edge around the entire project 3" from edge of compacted aggregate.

Lay pavers

Lay paver stones in desired pattern with approximately 1/8" joints. If the desired pattern requires cutting, the paver can be cut with a circular saw with a masonry blade.

Compact & spread sand

Compact the installed pavers with a plate compactor in both directions at least two passes. Once compacted, spread play sand on the installation and sweep into joints. Compact again to ensure that all joints are completely full. Remove any remaining sand from on top of project. You can substitute paver locking sand in place of play sand to inhibit weed growth.

Mould Care

  • Congratulations! You are now on your way to produce top quality concrete products with these extremely tough and durable high detailed Polyvinyl Chloride Moulds - the best possible method of reproducing the highest standard of detail in concrete paving products.
  • If your Polyvinyl Chloride Moulds (or any other rubber mould) is used according to these guidelines it will ensure great detail on your concrete products, and years of satisfaction.
  • Some release lubricants/agents attack different types of rubber in different ways. Lubricants like old/new motor oil, diesel, and old cooking oil etc. should never be used on your Polyvinyl Chloride Moulds. (- or any other rubber mould.)
  • Always support or brace your mould with wood or plywood around the sides and bottom to ensure true shape and minimal stresses on the mould outer sides.
  • Avoid mould exposure to the sun. Shade is always the better option for any rubber product.
  • Never hit your mould with an object/hammer to de-mould your concrete products. If our prescribed release agent is used, your product will de-mould easily.
  • Never use sharp objects to clean or scrape off concrete residue from your mould. Your mould is abrasive resistant, not cut resistant!
  • Always clean your mould with water and a soft brush after use. Remove all cement-based residues. (Start each day with a clean mould.)
