There’s more to just digging out the dirt and placing stones in the floor, although that can be done. Excavation, leveling, installation and joints are needed for a flawless flooring that will last for years. When excavating a precise level is set so that the new flooring should be level with the rest of the yard as to not create a pool when it rains. Once the correct depth is situated the ground is packed firmly and then topped with a medium to help maintain its shape, typically sand which is not compacted in able to help with adjustments needed during the process. Other materials can be used but sand usually does the trick, it also helps with drainage. Your stone pavers are then placed nice and neatly to achieve the look that is desired, designs and different colored borders can be made during this face if desired. Once everything is checked and double checked for correct level and spacing filler is used to help keep each of the stones in place and resist shifting after the installation is complete.
