Quality patio pavers San Diego backyards love
Residents of San Diego are truly blessed. San Diego’s sunny climate makes outdoor living a delightful year-round experience. Having a cozy outdoor bbq island in San Diego will give you all the more reason to spend more time in your backyard. The larger the patio next to your outdoor kitchen, the better. Not only can you use it to for outdoor meals, but also to host memorable outdoor parties for friends and family.
Just take a word of advice from the leading paver installers in San Diego and add a paver to your patio: it will be worth your while. If sustainability is your primary concern, then a paver is an excellent choice, as you will be saving resources in the long run. What’s more, with a paved patio, you will be getting the most out of warm summer nights or chilly weekends in the late fall for many years to come.
What are patio pavers?
Installing patio pavers in San Diego 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. Pavers 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.
The beauty of pavers 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 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. Although pavers are most often used for patios, driveways and walkways, they are also an excellent solution for outdoor kitchens and sidewalks.

What is the best base for pavers?
We will help you decide on the best base for your pavers once we take a closer look at your backyard. Naturally, we always act with the client’s best interest at heart which has made us the number one choice for paver installation 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.
