To make sure that the area is even and level for the paving stones you will need a soil compactor, which you can usually rent from a home supply store or a store that rents tools. You will also need a shovel to dig out the dirt in the area where you are going to do a paving stone installation. A stiff broom is needed also to sweep the packing material into the gaps between the paying stones.
If you decide to go ahead with installation yourself it will require some time and effort to ensure that it is done correctly. One of the first things that you will need to do is make sure that the area where the paving stones are going to be installed is mapped out carefully so you can devise a pattern. Next you have to make sure that the ground is cut, compacted, and leveled so the paver stones you are going to use will lie on a flat surface.
Usually the paving stones will be either rectangular or square but there are actually a large variety of different shapes and sizes. The most popular patterns that can be created with the square or rectangular shapes are the basket weave or the herringbone. By using either power or hand saws the stones can be made to fit exactly into patterns.
This half-moon lawn edger is of course long handled so that all the work is done standing up instead of kneeling or bent over double. While cleaning up between stones of course I also edged along the grass side so that now we can see where grass is meant to be and where stones take over. This method is possible for a quite small area. I certainly wouldn’t want to do it for a paved patio or long walkway.
