Hi all,

Iíve had a good look round and found answers to many of my questions, itís a great resource!

One thing I havenít quite found is the acceptable gap between a solider course and the fixed edge (I.e the wall of the house) the person who is laying the pavers is using a string line to get a straight edge, but in some cases this has wandered off (the wall is quite uneven, even though I think theyíve given more leeway than needed) leaving 15-20mm gap. Is this ok to just be filled with paving sand, or should it be mortered as well, Iím worried it doesnít look that good, but more importantly I donít want the blocks to move over time.

Any advise would be appreciated!

Thanks

Probably gave " more leaway " so that the infill isn't to thin, to thin will fail. Sounds like he knows what he is doing
