National basic guide to laying pavers
- Prepare the site –
Excavate the area to be paved to allow for the base layer (generally 100-150mm thick of road base), bedding sand (generally 30mm thick course washed river sand) and the paver thickness. Establish fall and level using a spirit level on the screed board. Spread the road base to an even thickness and compact using a mechanical plate compator.
- Add the bedding sand –
Place screed rails on road base and spread bedding sand roughly between and over the rails – keep the rails. The easiest way to screed sand is to use two guids ( screed rails) and a screeding board (e.g. a flat [iece of timber). Establish bedding tracks with the screeding board.
- Level the surface –
Bed the screed rails into the bedding sand. Drag the screeding board in a sawing motion from side to side across the rails to create a firm, flat laying surface. Remove the rails, fill in the voids with bedding sand and trowel smooth.
- Set the lines –
Set string lines at right angles to establish paving lines. These will help keep the joints straight for that truly professional look.
- Begin the laying –
Start laying along the longest straight edge of the designated area and lay whole pavers first. Leave 3-5mm between pavers to allow for joining sand (unless the pavers have nibs).
- Cut Pavers –
Cut and position part pavers if the job requires them. Edge restraints prevent the pavers from moving.
- Fill the joints –
Sweep jointing sand over the finished dry paving, ensuring that all joints are full.
