What ever you call them, the possible applications for pavers are only limited by your imagination. The concept of interlocking pavers or paver stones dates back over 2000 years to the Roman Empire. Their cobble stone roads were constructed with a well compacted foundation. The permanent surface was tight fitting cut paving stones or cobble stones. Today, we have the knowledge of experience and science to further improve on the interlocking paver system.
The ICPI (interlocking concrete paver institute) is a trade association dedicated to improving the paver industry through training and certification. The ICPI has set standards for paver systems, that help insure a trouble free install for life Landscape Innovations has ICPI trained and certified installers on staff and we do not sub-contract our paver work like many of our local competitors. Due to our understanding of these industry standards and over 20 yrs experience in the landscape/ hardscape contracting business, we are proud to offer a 2yr workmanship guarantee with every hardscape install.
An interlocking paver system is comprised of several components.
First, is the compact sub-grade, which is the existing soil excavated to the appropriate elevation and followed by a layer of geo-textile fabric. Second, is the compacted base material, which consists of compacted gravel to a depth of 4 to 12 inches(application dependent). Next, a layer of bedding sand, and last, the actual pavers. The entire perimeter is then surrounded by an edge restraint system and joint sand is swept and vibrated into the cracks. The entire area is compacted again to produce a hardscape that will last a life time.
The modern paver options of style, color and even materials are much more varied and new techniques that use geo-textile fabrics and better engineering practices have further improved the life span of installations.
