Paving block structures with mortar filled vertical joints can exhibit a significantly higher load capacity as comparable structures with sand filled joints. For this reason, this pavement construction method is increasingly being used or would be used, respectively, if its performance could be estimated reliably. Specifically, the exact cause of cracks due to cooling in winter has not been fully understood yet and appropriate prediction tools do not exist.
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.
Once you have your materials you need to start work in your area. Make sure all debris and other materials are cleared and then begin to set your sub base. Your sub base will ideally be made of very fine gravel or preferably sand. You are going to want to set a sub base of roughly 70 mm deep so that your paving stones appear to be level with the ground but are also protected from the dirt underneath the sub base. This will also help with any drainage issues you may have with your block paving path.
According to Bosun Brick, a leading manufacturer of pre-cast concrete pavers and kerbs, the selection of the correct product for your application is essential for the long term durability of the paved area.
