When installing interlock, whether a driveway, walkway, or patio, ensure the grade is prepared properly. Use limestone screening as your base. Level out the area, taking into consideration a slight slope for water run off. Lay the interlock and cover with a light coat of brick sand. Sweep the sand into all the joints. Leave some sand on top of the interlock. This is to avoid scratching while packing the stones down. Use a plate tamper and pack the stones. Apply more brick sand to fill all joints. Ensure entire area is packed. TO finish, light wash the sand into all the joints using a garden hose. Note, you should wait 4-6 wks before using any varnish or sealers on your interlock. This will prolong its life!!

Thanks for the very valuable tips! This will be extremely helpful for my husband. He hasn't quite decided yet if he is going to do the installation himself or just hire interlocking stone in ottawa. We have heard good recommendations.
