You will also need a light plate compactor. Most people do not own this piece of equipment but you can easily rent or purchase one online or at your local hardware supply store like Lowe’s or Home Depot. You also have the option of using a simple claw hammer and various sizes of wood to lay block paving in a small area but it is not recommended simply for the fact that it will lead to much more unstable blocks.
A block building that is concrete will be more cost effective than a home using bricks but will offer the same level of energy efficiency. This is especially important in Australia’s hot climate since these blocks tend to keep interiors cooler for longer, by trapping the cool air inside. This means that you will save a bundle on power consumption and heating, as the mass of the blocks not only keeps heat out during summer, but retains heat indoors for longer during winter.
I would highly recommend using the services of a reputable landscaping and paving company. Often the ones with the best websites will be good, as this shows they take their business seriously. Do not go on this tip alone! You should do your research, get reviews and testimonials, check out their previous work. A good company will have a portfolio of previous work for you to see.
After this you need to start to clear a canal around the perimeter of the sub base you have just set. This canal needs to then be filled with quick dry concrete and leveled off. Once the concrete has dried you grab whatever edging blocks you decided to purchase and put them around the edge of the perimeter. Take a straight piece of lumber and a carpenters level to make sure each edge stone is level and straight. After this you need to wait for no less than 72 hours for everything to become level and set. Avoid the urge to mess with the pathway or it will not set properly.
