RE: Trilliums ?

Our driveway is paver brick over a 10" large stone base with chips and dust
to fill in and then a 2" layer of sand.  It isn't rocket science, but it is
labor intensive when you do as much as Bill and I did.  300 Sq Ft ought to
be manageable though.  I think if we had it to do over, we'd have opted for
decomposed granite instead of sand for the last layer.  Weeds will grow in
just about anything and we do have our share of weeds to rip out between the
paver bricks.

You will send a photo, won't you, when you're done?

Firm foundation.  :)

Actually, it's not that deep.  I have about 300 square feet to dig about six
inches down.  I'm putting in a 4" base of crushed limestone with regular
interlocking pavers.

The limestone works much better than gravel, costs less, and doesn't need to
be as deep.
