Starting around 500 B.C., the Romans used this method to build roads in order the growth of their empire. Its a simple way to build something that will last for long time and won’t split like concrete. First step: remove 4″-6″ of soil, then add non woven geotextile fabric to separate out the soil from base material. Second step: add the crush base material and pack well. Third: add an 1″ of bedding sand. You don’t want to go any deeper than this because it will cause the block to tip up over. Fourth: step lay bricks, add edging to hold brick in place, tamp the bricks into place, and top with sand to fill the joints. Last step enjoy with campfire, friends, and family.
