Prepare to Lay a Paver Path
Lay out pegs and string lines along the edges of the path. Dig out the path area to a depth of paver height plus a 2-inch (5-cm) sand bed.
Create a Form for the Path
Put treated wood edging into the excavated area. Drive in wooden pegs on the external side of the board to keep it in place.
Lay the Sand Base for the Pavers
Compact the soil with a rammer. Pour sharp sand into the excavated area and use a wooden furring strip notched out at each end to level off the sand surface to the depth required for the pavers.
Prepare to Cut Paver Blocks
Position the paver between the jaws of the block splitter. Align the point you wish to cut.
Cut the Pavers
Lower the handle of the splitter to break the paver in two.
Laying a Paver Path
Lay blocks in your chosen design. Butt each end up against the next.
Secure the Pavers in Place
Use a rubber mallet to bed blocks into place. Infill cut blocks to finish the design.
