Outdoor Living Tip of the Day

The Grade

Installing the proper grade for a paver patio should be the top priority for any hardscape project. Digging out the dirt is the first step, followed by approximately 4” of compacted ABC (aggregate base composite). Properly tamping the ABC is the key to success for creating the correct grade. Adding screenings and placing the pavers are all easily done with a Grade A ABC base. Sloping the rest of the lawn for drainage is also important and taken care post paver patio.
