General Note: Paving
A well-laid foundation is essential for effective and lasting results. A fall of at least 1 in 60 is recommended. For a clean architectural appearance, the joints can be mortar-pointed. For a softer, natural appearance, paving should be laid edge to edge, un pointed, with sand brushed into the joints. This method also facilitates drainage. Cement and mortar stains are difficult to remove from paving so extreme care must be taken to keep surfaces clean. Four clear days should be allowed to elapse after construction before foot traffic is allowed over all laid areas. For vehicular traffic, special laying instructions are available on application.
