The key to interlock installation is the preparation of the base. It is critical to have a solid base. The base should be 8-12” in depth depending on the application (more weight, more base).
The base can consist of a granular base with the top portion of the base being limestone screenings for leveling.
Compaction of the base is critical. Every few inches should be compacted with a plate tamper. In areas that are too tight a hand held tamper should be used.
When installing the stone ensure that the area is level. A combination of laser and level can make final grading extremely accurate.
In areas where the stones are adjacent to the house, the stones should be sloping gently away from the house.
Plastic edging should be installed once the pattern has been established. This helps ensure that all stones are held securely in place.
In most cases the stones have to be cut in some areas. The use of a concrete saw, either handheld or table, make this an efficient process and adds to the beauty and flexibility that interlock offers.
Once all stones have been laid, cut and edging installed then the stones should be tempered with a plate tamper.
The final step is to sweep polymeric sand over the entire patio. This is extremely fine sand that drops in between the cracks. Once the sand is in the cracks and is wet, it will dry like concrete and solidify the entire area.
