Pavers are a great way that you can add to the beauty and functionality of your yard. They can create a path, a patio or simply help with your yard’s décor. Looking at them, you might think that they are an easy DIY job. However, looks can be deceiving.
One of the biggest problems that happens with pavers is that they often will sink into the ground. Below are some of the reasons why this happens.
Being Exposed to A lot of Water
If you have a pool of water close to the pavers, eventually you are going to notice problems with your pavers sinking. That water is going to seep under your pavers, which will make the ground underneath them soft and loose. Each time something heavy goes over the area, those pavers are going to sink. If this keeps happening without repairs being done, the sinking is going to spread out even more.
One of the best things that you can do is to drain the close by water. Later you can fix your sinking ground once the problem’s been neutralized.
Ground is Unstable
It’s possible that the ground that’s underneath your pavers to turn shaky. It might be because you didn’t compact the fitting material very well and they’re giving away now. It also might be that there’s a lot of water. In either case, you will have ground that’s shaky and this will cause your pavers to sink.
