....but that is an incorect and unacceptable construction that *will* fail ureventually. It's the work of cowboys, rogues and incompetents.
It may well look effective when new, but there are very well-established reasons why it is not the correct way to do the job, and they are explained on the page I referenced earlier in this thread.
If there is to be any integrity at all in the paving trade, it is exactly this sort of practice that needs to be condemned and stamped out.
Your preaching to the converted, I understand its bad practice which is why myself even as an amateur have never done it and use the method this site recommends, I was pointing out its the so called professionals that are doing it round my way and they get job after job after job on the same street as when the paving is newly laid it looks impressive to the untrained eye, they appear very proud of it as they erect a huge sign in every drive they pave.
