Paving 

Hi Charlie, we are looking to pave a walkway which currently has pavers in a thin walkway with some overgrown plants on the side (this was here when we bought the house). We are looking to rip up the plants and the pavers and lay more pavers to make a wider walkway. What is the best base to use for pavers to stop weeds coming throgh and move movement of the pavers. Also would you recommend a particular type of paver as the current paverscare concrete ? Thanks

Answered Wednesday 11 April 2012

The base will depend on the paver you use - your supplier should be able to recommend a suitable base
