How to Prevent You Driveway From Sinking
To prevent your interlock driveway from sinking, you must have a sufficient amount of gravel in the base. If there is not a sufficient amount, the job will fail. Follow the steps listed below for a step-by-step driveway interlock guide:
1. Excavation. If there is an insufficient gravel base, you must perform a deep excavation and ensure there is enough room to fill 12″ of gravel, plus room for the width of the stones.
2. Install Geotextile. This textile acts as a filter, separating old base materials (soil, sand, clay) from the new gravel base, which helps prevent the gravel from mixing or sinking.
3. Install Gravel. Install the gravel on top of the Geotextile.
4. Compaction. This is crucial. 500+ lbs. of weight should be added to completely compact the base.
5. Level the ground with bedding material. The best bedding material is High-Performance Bedding (HPB). It is fully permeable, meaning it does not hold moisture. This reduces the chance of expansion in the winter.
6. Install stones & fill gaps. Put the stones back in place and fill the gaps with polymeric sand. This sand will act as glue, holding the stones together. Once applied, it needs to be compacted, so it can settle in the gaps. Then a second layer should be applied to completely seal the interlock and eliminate the potential for shifting.

Interlocking Driveway Costs
Below are the following factors that could affect the cost of your project:
- Driveway Size. Cost is usually calculated by sq. ft.
- Mobilization of Crew (Fixed Cost). This includes the cost of bringing tools, equipment, etc. For example, if equipment cannot fit through spaces, more time and labour is required, which increases the cost.
- Gravel Delivery (Fixed Cost). Regardless of the amount of gravel needed, a truck will be required.
- Type of Stone. The average cost of a stone is $6-$7 per sq. ft. The lower end is $3-$4 per sq. ft. (not recommended). The higher end is $8-$15 per sq. ft.
Excavation will be required to determine the condition of your existing gravel base. The total costs are as follows for a 1,000 sq. ft. driveway:
Brand-new gravel base: between $30,000 and $45,000
Existing gravel base: between $20,000 and $30,000
Say goodbye to shoveling snow and slipping on ice! Heated driveways are radiant heat flooring systems that can be installed indoors or outdoors, to melt snow and ice without having to step outside. There are two main ways to achieve this:
1. Electric System
This system has lower installation costs and requires less space to install. Thin, efficient electric cables are installed under your driveway, meaning they don’t take up additional space or get in the way. However, this method does take a little longer to heat up.
2. Rigid Hydraulic System
This is a closed system, containing tubes filled with water that are connected to a boiler. The boiler can be as small as 2′ x 2′, or as big as 4.5′ x 4.5′, and is usually placed in the garage or basement. The extra boiler space can be considered a drawback. However, this method is more efficient, as it takes less time to heat up and uses less gas, resulting in lower running costs.
Lights for Interlocking
Another great feature that can enhance the look of your interlocking driveway is lighting installed in the interlocking. This adds an intriguing design element to your home that is eye-catching for all of the right reasons. With lights, you can really modernize your home and give it a unique look when compared to other homes in your neighbourhood.
On top of that, these lights illuminate your home even more, which can benefit your home from a security perspective. When you go with our company for your driveway pavers, you can really have it all. We give you the options to get an interlocking driveway that gives you everything you want from your driveway. Our driveway interlock experts in Toronto will help enhance the curb appeal, security, and overall aesthetic of your home.

The Benefits of Adding a Border to Your Interlocking Driveway
An interlocking driveway is a great way to add curb appeal and value to your home. But what if you want to take it a step further? Adding a border to your interlocking driveway is a great way to do just that! In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the benefits of adding a border to your interlocking driveway.
Aesthetics: One of the most obvious benefits of adding a border to your interlocking driveway is aesthetics. A well-designed border can really make your driveway pop and give it that extra bit of curb appeal. If you’re looking to sell your home, a border can be a great way to increase its value.
Protection: Another benefit of adding a border to your interlocking driveway is protection. A border can help protect your driveway from things like snow plows, lawnmowers, and even pets. By keeping these things away from the edges of your driveway, you can help extend its lifespan and keep it looking its best for years to come.
Easy Maintenance: Borders can also make maintaining your interlocking driveway easier. By enclosing the edges of your driveway, you can help prevent weed growth and stop soil erosion. This means less work for you in the long run!
