Brush kiln dried sand over the entire area making sure all the joints are full to the top. Then give them a compacting with the plate compactor, leave surplus sand on top of the the driveway so when the vibrating plate passes over it, it will spread about filling any joints which may require more sand.
These have only been around since the early eighties but seem to have lasted the test of time. There are many different types colours and styles to choose from, you could even make your own pattern if you so desire. The advantages of having a block paved driveway are marginal; much of it comes down to personal taste. But durability is a major attraction as block paving can last a very long time.
You need a flat bed for your pavers to lay on, to do this you can use 18mm galvanised steel electrical conduit, they are not expensive but are better than using timber because the piece of timber or aluminum used to screed the sand will slide along them much easier.
There are 2 methods you can employ as the bed for block paving, one, you have fully compacted sand making the sub base and the laying coarse much firmer, achieving a much flatter surface. To achieve this you need your sand approx 10 – 15mm higher than the finished screeding height, this surplus sand is screeded off to the correct height and then you lay your block paving.
