Here are some samples of the different types of pavers. Please remember that colors and styles may differ
from actual product.
Old Country Cobblestone
Install in 5 Easy Steps:
1. Excavate to the proper design depth (see diagram). Remove all surplus
unsuitable sub-base material. Compact the area which has been cleared. Then
backfill the area with aggregate suitable for base material. The depth of the
base should be 3-4 inches for pedestrian sidewalks and patios, 6-8 inches for
light vehicular traffic, and 8-12 inches for heavy vehicular and industrial use
or as otherwise directed by the Project Engineer, Architect, or Landscape
Architect.Compact the base to 95% density.
2. Spread concrete sand evenly over the base and screed to a uniform depth of
1–11¼2 inches up to the edge. Note that edge restraints can be of various types,
such as concrete, wood, plastic pavement edging, etc. The screeded sand should
not be disturbed until the pavers are laid.
3. Install the Old Country Cobblestone pavers in the desired pattern 1/4 inch
above final grade. Care should be taken to achieve the desired color distribution,
keeping in mind that even solid colors have some variation in color and texture.
These pavers should have a snug fit with the integral ribs providing the correct
clearance between adjoining stones. Use a fracture tool or saw to neatly cut the
paving stones when required.
4. Sweep a fine dry sand over the pavers and into the joints. Vibrate the pavers
into the bedding sand with a plate vibrator. This piece of equipment should be
capable of 3000 to 5000 lbs. centrifugal compaction force, and operate at a
frequency of 80 to 90 hertz. At least two passes with the vibrator should be made
across the surface, or until the joints are full.
Note: To help prevent paver scarring from the vibrator plate, maintain a layer
of sand between the plate and the paver surface.
5. Sweep off excess sand. The paver surface is now ready
