Pros or Cons of Brock Paver Base

athomemom(southcentralPA)June 27, 2011


We were at Lowes over the weekend and came across Brock Paver Base (polypropylene panels that are placed over a bed of sand eliminating the need for deeper digging for a stone base - Has anyone used these before? If not can you think of any reason why they might not work?

We live in the mountains & have lots of rocks & stones just below the surface, if we can eliminate the extra 4-6 inches of digging it would be a huge help. We would like to use them for the base of a walkway with 4" thick stone pavers.

Any comments would be appreciated.
