paver driveway maintenance frequently asked questions
  • Mike S

    I live in Northeast Florida. I am about to build a house with a rather large (3,400sf) paver driveway. My question is what type of driveway base would be best for pavers? Crushed concrete or crushed granite?

    • Either one would be just just fine but I prefer granite.

        Thant’s for your answer. I’m new to this subject and am not a contractor. I’ve been told a granite base allows for water to percolate down into the soil. Concrete base does not. Are there any other attributes of crushed concrete I need to consider other than allowing for water run off? I haven’t investigated the cost of crushed granite locally but have gotten 2 estimates on installation of a paver driveway. The first contractor wanted to use a granite base, the other a concrete base. There was a $1.50 psf difference in cost? Not sure how much of that was the cost of the granite. Why do you prefer granite?

        • There’s nothing wrong with the base being pervious as it allows water to seep into the soil beneath which is why crushed granite is just fine. I prefer granite simply because I like the density of compaction you can get with it vs crushed concrete.
