Common Paving Patterns
The Venture Outdoor Paving Process
At this stage we choose the finished floor height for the new paving. We then remove existing pavers, topsoil and detritus material until we are left with an unobstructed surface ready to accept substrate for compaction.
Here our chosen substrate is spread and compacted. The thickness and type of substrate used will depend highly on the type of paving and environmental conditions. Brickies sand is commonplace and can be used for engineered limestone and clay pavers, whereas travertine stone paving requires crushed bluemetal (cracker) dust for added compaction strength. One may also opt to use bluemetal as the substrate if the area to be paved is going be in a high traffic area (driveway) or they have a problem with ants (natural termimesh).
In this stage the paving pattern is considered, and a start location chosen to limit cuts. The boarder is laid, and the surrounded section filled.
After the pavers are laid it is time to spread the fill. Fill used is either white sand or pavemate. White sand is good for all general applications, whereas we use pavemate, a setting fill, when the paving is located around constant water i.e. your pool. After the chosen fill is spread across the pavers it is brushed in with a stiff broom and compacted to its final level.
