Pros or Cons of Brock Paver Base

Posted by athomemom southcentralPA (My Page) on

We were at Lowes over the weekend and came across Brock Paver Base (polypropylene panels that are placed over a bed of sand eliminating the need for deeper digging for a stone base - Has anyone used these before? If not can you think of any reason why they might not work?

We live in the mountains & have lots of rocks & stones just below the surface, if we can eliminate the extra 4-6 inches of digging it would be a huge help. We would like to use them for the base of a walkway with 4" thick stone pavers.

Any comments would be appreciated.
