Lay out the driveway in the shape you want it
  • Stake it out using wooden stakes and marking
    spray paint.
  • A string line tied between stakes can help guide
    you while laying out the shape and grade as well
    as during the actual construction. This will keep
    you on grade.
  • Be sure the driveway will be able to drain when
    completed.

Excavate the area for the driveway to a depth of
at least 12 to 14 inches
  • Because of the amount of digging and excavated
    material to be disposed of, it is recommended
    that you hire an excavation contractor.
  • The contractor will have the equipment, haul
    truck, experienced personnel and location
    necessary to haul off the waste.

Bring in the stone base that will double as
support for the brick and drainage
  •  You will need either stone screenings or
    pea-gravel, depending on what is available in
    your area.

Dump the stone in small manageable piles on the

Install the stone in at least 2 or, better, 3
lifts using a plate vibrator to compact it
together
  • The small rock will form a solid base once it has
    been compacted. Driveway Paving should be done
    with great care.

Begin at the center of the end of the driveway
and work out toward the edges using brick spacers
to keep even spacing
  • Starting in the middle will ensure that the
    bricks on each side, or edge, are the same size.
    This provides a uniform look.

Use masonry sand to fill the joints between the
brick by spreading it out over the brick sweeping
it into the joints
  • Follow this step for the better finish.
