I'm going to show you how to lay the basefor pavers. Before we can start to lay our pavers, we need to look at the tools and materialsthat we require. For a start we need a rake, we need a shovel, we need a wheelbarrow tocarry our road base, and we also need a plate compactor. In addition we need our tools likeour lump hammer, measuring tools. We need a spirit level, we need a straight edge. I'vealso got a drill and a hex head and hex screws, and we've got our form work of course whichis going to form around the perimeter of our area. I'm going to lay 100 to 150 road base in thisarea behind me. However, before I can do that I need to level this area and using a rakeI'm is going to start doing that right now. I've just raked this area to a reasonablelevel. Next I want to measure to the level of my road base. My reference point is goingto be the corner of this verandah here and that's where the level of my road base willcome. Next, I'll need to measure along that wall to pick up the area that my road baseis going to come to. Firstly, before I want to do that, I wantto make sure that the corner of the building here is square. Because if it's not, whenI lay my pavers later on, we're going to have pavers moving this way. So I'm just goingto grab my square over here and check that we've got a square area here. I've just measuredthe top and the bottom of that corner and the walls are nice and square. I'm now goingto use this straight edge and this level to get a level on all along the walls of thisbuilding and I'm going to use the top of this verandah as my reference point to run my straightline all around the building. Because we've got square walls, I'm goingto measure from this point here, this corner, which was the base line through to that cornerthere in the corner and then measure from the corner to the end of the wall and thatwill give me the measurements for my form work and for my nice square box. Now thatI've taken my measurements, I've rounded up to allow for any contingencies and I'm nowable to calculate the quantity of road base I need simply by working out the length bythe width and the depth of the road base. I took my measurements and now I'm going totrace to that to my form work. I'm now going to put my first piece of formwork in and it's going to butt up against the edge of that wall and I'll put a starpicket in to hold it in place. I want to make sure that this form work is going to be niceand level. So I'm putting my spirit level on the top and just make sure that it sitsstraight and level, and the bubbles in the middle. Next I need to pick up from this pointand put my second piece of form work in. I've taken my measurement from that corner to theedge of that wall. I'm going to trace for that now to this piece of form work here andthat will allow me to work out the distance between that corner at that point there andwhere it's going to intersect with this particular piece of form work there. I just want to makesure that my form work is square, so I'm going to use the square here on the inside of theform work and make sure that I do have that perfect square. And yes I have. Next, I want to make sure that this pieceof form work, which is going to stay here, is nice and firm and in place. I'm going toput some star pickets in. I'm going to remove this piece of form work and put it in lateron because what I need is a track to come through with my wheel barrow, dump my roadbase, and then compact it with the compactor. I want to make sure that this piece of formwork here is going to be firm and stay in place so I'm going to drop my pickets in variouspoints along the board and keep it nicely in place. To make sure that my form work staysin place, I'm going to use these hexagonal screws and screw the picket to the form work. I can now remove this one here, ready to roll my road base in. It's now time for the heavywork and I'm going to roll the barrows in and dump my road base in this area here andthen compact it. We've got our road base in place inside ourform work. And what I'm going to do now is just continue to rake it over and then afterthat, just to make sure that we've got a nice flat surface, I'm going to do a little bitof screening and then check it with the level just to make sure that it's all nice and flat. Handy tip, it's a good idea to wet the road base down. Two purposes, one it stops thedust flying up, and secondly it helps the compaction. I've just lifted the Pike compactor over ontothe road base and we're going to start the engine and start compacting. Well I've justfinished using the Pike packer to pack down and flatten the road by surface behind mehere and now it's ready for the paving side of it. However, before I start my paving,I want to make sure that my surface behind me is flat and even, and to be on the cautiousside I'm just going to take a couple of levels and make sure that it is absolutely flat surfaceso I end up with an excellent finish with my paving. Very good and looks like now we'reready for paving.
