Is the driveway in the Netherlands? If so, pretty well I would think...

Seriously, I have no idea, I was thinking for a backyard patio?

Nope - Can't take the weight. Need something a little beefier for a driveway.

Good prices.

Any easy DIY guides for building a patio?

Or is this a job for the professional landscapers?

If you don't mind doing a little more work, I could suggest doing something like this.

Walkmaker [amazon.com]

I did this for a patio (about 12' x 4') a few weeks ago. It took about a dozen 80lb bags of quikrete, some sweat, and a sunny Sunday to complete. No need to level the ground, or add sand, etc either.

Here is a pic of the work in progress. It looks a little dirty, but I had just finished filling in the cracks with a second layer of top soil.

Doing a walkway tomorrow in the backyard, might just use this since I can save a few dollars compared to HD. Thanks.

HD has a special on Sakrete 50 lb sand, 4 for $10. Lowe's has the same price for sand, but it's not Sakrete. Not sure that it matters for sand, but there you go.

3 for a dollar is an excellent price for a 4X8 paver. I paid 40 cent a block for a 3X6 a few years back...

This is what I did...

Measure the area you want for a patio and do the math on how many bricks it will take + 5-10% more

till patio area ( I went 6 - 8 inches deep) mix in sand when tilling - I live in the south east

lay any cable (light sound) or water lines

rake area smooth and grade the dirt away from the house

Order your pallets of brick delivered. I had 2 pallets and they can put them right on the job site

Let the job site sit for at least 2 months and compact

bring in play ground sand and using a long 2X4 compact and pull the sand to make a bed for the brick
make sure to slope away from house (for the second time)

MOST IMPORTANT
When laying brick from multiple pallets mix the brick laying from both pallets!!!! There is color variations

pound bricks down and tight with rubber mallet

when laid sweep a fine sand or concrete dust into joint and water in (Repeat this 2X)

Drink Lots of beer!!!!

I've used both, I like the quikrete sand and concrete a lot better.

What's the difference? The Quikrete is $3.48 at Lowe's. It'll probably only be a difference of $2-3 for my small project, though.

Not true at all. 2-1/4" pavers are plenty heavy enough. It's all about the base.
