Hey rlwjr.


We do not have to fight with sandy soils here in Atlanta, therefore we only have to put down 2 inches if a paver base and 1 inch of leveling leveling sand.


In sandy soil it is imperative that you put down 4 to 6 inches of a paver base and compact it with a plate compactor and then add 1 inch of leveling sand to the top of the paver base to insure that the pavers go down nice and smooth. I also talked to my Pavestone rep. in San Antonio Texas to confirm this and she confirmed that this was definitely the ideal way to do this project.
