Tools Required

Trowel | Spirit level | Rubber mallet | Measuring tape | Plate compactor

Materials Required

Clay pavers | Sand | Gravel | Edging material | Jointing compound

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Preparation:Clear and excavate the area to a depth of around 150-200 mm.
    Lay a geotextile membrane to prevent weed growth and improve stability.

  2. Base Layer:Add a sub-base of compacted gravel (100-150 mm thick) to provide a stable foundation.
    Compact the gravel using a plate compactor to ensure a solid base.

  3. Sand Layer:Spread a layer of sharp sand (around 30-40 mm thick) over the compacted gravel.
    Level the sand layer using a screed board.

  4. Lay Pavers:Start from a corner or edge and lay the pavers in the desired pattern.
    Use a rubber mallet to gently tap the pavers into place and ensure they are level.

  5. Edge Restraints:Install edging material around the perimeter to keep the pavers in place.

  6. Jointing:Fill the gaps between the pavers with sand or a suitable jointing compound.
    Use a plate compactor to settle the pavers and fill the joints completely.

  7. Finishing:Sweep the surface to remove any loose debris.
    Spray water over the pavers to clean off any remaining sand.

Single Units

Ideal for small projects, repairs, or when only a few pavers are needed.


Typically sold in bulk, with each pallet containing multiple pavers. This option is suitable for medium to large construction projects.


Smaller quantities than pallets, often sold in bundles of 10, 20, or 50 pavers, suitable for minor projects or additions.

Environmental Impact

Sustainability Considerations

Made from natural clay, which is abundant and recyclable, reducing environmental impact.

Eco-friendly Alternatives

Permeable clay pavers that allow water to pass through, reducing runoff and improving groundwater recharge.

Energy Efficiency

Firing clay at high temperatures can be energy-intensive, but modern practices aim to reduce this through efficient kiln technologies.
