Can you use pavers for a driveway?

Pros and Cons of a Concrete Paver Driveway. Concrete pavers are a popular choice for driveways, sidewalks, patios, and pool surrounds. Unlike poured concrete and asphalt driveways, concrete paver driveways do not require a curing period. Once installed, they are ready to use.

So, can pavers be installed on top of concrete?

According to several paver manufacturers, paving blocks can be installed on top of concrete without mortar if you first lay down a 1/2″ to 1” bed of coarse sand. The process is nearly identical to laying a paver patio over ground.

How thick do pavers need to be for a driveway?

Thickness of Concrete Pavers and Other Specifications. Thickness of concrete pavers varies according to the application: Pedestrian areas, driveways, and areas subject to limited vehicular use are paved with units 2 3/8" thick. Streets and industrial pavements should be paved with units 3 1/8" thick.
