San Diego Pavers
are a great way to improve your landscape and garden. They are super strong and lend themselves to many hardscaping projects. They rarely crack but if they do, each piece is easily replaceable. That’s why so many manufacturers offer a lifetime guarantee with San Diego Pavers – something you won’t get with ordinary concrete.
Benifits of San Diego Pavers
Installing san diego pavers means never having to worry about cracking due to tree roots, clay soils and expansion from temperature changes. You can’t say the same about ordinary poured concrete. They are made from “no slump” concrete with natural mineral oxide color pigments, compacted under great pressure and high frequency vibration. The spaces in between individual pieces, known as expansion joints, “give” with the conditions.
San Diego Pavers Design
There are many types of concrete pavers that offer attractive design possibilities. Popular patterns include modified basketweave, modified herringbone, “L” pattern, “I” pattern, and random. Some of the most wanted colors include: brown, gray, terra cotta, charcoal brown, and yellow brown. You can create your own unique blend by mixing different hues together.
Concrete pavers also have different textures and finishes. If you want a more rustic surface, there are the tumbled and cobbled types of pavers. There are many natural stone types as well as affordable Stonetop finishes.
Their beauty lies not only in their distinctive appearance but in the practical application of this unique hardscaping product. These stones have been a mainstay in commercial outdoor areas – shopping malls, amusement parks, public transportation wait areas – for good reason. They can withstand an enormous amount of pressure because of their hardness and strength. They are rated 4 times as strong as poured concrete (8000 psi vs. 2000 psi).
Many times homeowners prefer pavers over poured concrete because of the unique patterns, textures and colors provided in a single step. Patios, walkways, outdoor kitchens and sidewalks are perfect places to use them.
Installing Pavers in San Diego
First, we excavate the existing ground and apply the appropriate base material. We always focus on proper drainage by having a fall of approximately ¼” per foot. Next, we level and compact the base to ensure that it is firm enough to apply the paving stones. We apply at least 4” of class 2 road base for pedestrian traffic and 6” of vehicular traffic. If large vehicles are going to be driven over the driveway, we apply 8” of road base to the area.
We install the pavers after compacting a 1” bed of clean, sharp concrete sand for the pieces to sit on. After paver installation, we spread more sand over the top and run a plate compactor over 3 or 4 times to achieve final compaction. Afterwards we apply a sealer to lock the sand in the joints.
