Laying your paving block:
Laying your paving block:The paviours are simply placed on the sand, depending on the pattern you require. Laying begins on the edge or corner and proceed along one laying face until complete.
Then after making sure there is no debris on the paviours, using a rubber faced vibrating plate, pass the vibrator over the area 2/3 times to compact the area and make it even. Finally, after making sure that the paviours are dry, brush kiln dried on to the paviours and brush into the fine spaces between. Pass the rubber faced vibrator plate over the area again to tightly pack the sand into the joints.
