You are passionate about your work. Thank you.

Do any of your techniques differ for laying patio slabs (approx 24x24in)? Can you use sand in the larger 1/2 inch gaps? Same 1 inch layer of sand underneath? Can you get away with a lesser base with slabs? Thanks!

Dumb question time, what type of sand did you use as the base for the pavers? Did you do anything to this Sand before compacting it as in wet it or add some type of binder? Thanks for the video.

In canada we have to mitigate for more permafrost heaving, we try and avoid using sand as it holds more water than other products, if you look into stone dust youll find you wont have to worry as much about plate packing after you lay if you only use 1/2 inch

Question: does quik crete work well too?

shawn says:

Think most of it was cause they used wayyyyy to much sand. We always went with 2 inches of sand and anything under that was crushed gravel the. Left them all like an 1/8 high hit them with a plate compactor and it brought them level with what it’s suppos to be. Also with Polly sand from what I learned when you activate it you never want puddles running on the patio cause the glue comes out of the sand and puts a haze over the pavers.

Your video of this project shows much more of the project and more detail than the past Home Time episodes. You were doing more than they ever showed, great video.
