I have an area of block paving 6m*3m which (thanks to Tony and his site) I put in last year - it bridges the gap between the pavement and garage and serves as my drive.
I will shortly be adding to this with another flat square area 1.05m*8m that runs the length of the house.
There will be additional block paving steps and arcs to connect these two areas together and provide access to the house, and whilst a sand laying course plate-whacked down is how I'll tackle the big areas, and a lean mix infill with 6:1 laying course is how I'll tackle the steps too small to accommodate the whacker, I wonder where is the line where it becomes practical to get the whacker out again?
I am thinking specifically of the path connecting these two areas, which is going to be about 3m long and 1m wide, with a *fairly* (for me) tricky arc and gradient.
Would you have a sand laying course for that or do it with concrete?
Bonus round: when using a 6:1 grit sand:cement laying course for block paving, how deep would you make it?
Thank you all!
