If you really want to use standard brick patio paver tiles over dirt, it would be recommended to at the very least install a compacted gravel base or other stabilizing material over the dirt first to prevent the pavers from sinking and shifting over time. This causes unsightly tripping hazards and cleaning nightmares.
What to use for Best Results When Installing Pavers Over Dirt
The GeoGrid Cellular Paving System features a cell design of grids that disperses excess water and moisture and delivers fast, efficient implementation of stabilization and ground reinforcement.
Made from 100 percent recycled premium high density polyethylene, this cellular system to use when installing pavers over dirt has a lightweight, interlocking design for a simple, DIY installation process. Its patented design allows for expansion and contraction. It’s easy to handle, as it comes in convenient, manageable, 4-grid sections with 60 sections per pallet that are pre-connected.
To provide the very best ground reinforcement, it can be infilled with pea gravel, sand, aggregate, or stones in areas with heavy foot or even vehicle traffic.
The Easiest Paver Product to Install without a lot of Prep Work
This product is a breeze to install and virtually maintenance free. Although not recommended to install these pavers right over dirt, they can be installed indoors over wood, concrete, asphalt, or crushed stone. When installing these outside, the pavers must be set butting up against a perimeter border system of rubber curbing or a concrete curb. You just lay the pavers in a desired pattern over your base. Again, if the area is to be loose laid, a perimeter border system is required and the pavers must be installed butting up against the border system.
The equine paver’s cobblestone design enhances the appearance of any surface, replacing traditional dirty, dusty, slippery, high maintenance hard surfaces. They deliver a safe footing with excellent shock absorption and help to control bacteria and dust. They also provide comfort and durability.
