Handling – This product is heavy and a two-man clamp is recommended for placement.
Edge Restraint - A concrete curb or a “sub-surface concrete wedge” can also be installed to retain the edge.
Paver Compaction - For the final compaction, a “rubber roller compactor” will give you the best results without breaking the block .
Cleaners – Not applicable
Sealers - Not applicable
Recommendation: Sealers – After the soil is placed in the openings, it is recommended to seed the area or fill with sod plugs. In order for the grass to establish, provisions must be made for watering. In dry areas, consider irrigation over this area to prevent turf burnout.
The Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) provides measurable criteria to determine compliance, not individual product evaluation. Gaps, joints or openings, greater than ½” horizontal and ¼” vertical should be avoided as they can disrupt wheelchair maneuvering (United States Access Board – Guidelines and Standards).

Design trends rise and fall, but for something to be considered classic it needs to be both timeless and elegant. No two words could better describe the Unilock Classic paver. Available in a wide variety of shapes and styles, Classic pavers are made using a proven manufacturing process—blending cement, colors, and stone aggregates into a single batch and distributing the mix throughout the finished paver. This ensures a uniform look that is strong but capable of being formed into the wide variety of styles Classic is known for.

Where to Buy
Unilock has an extensive network of dealers with deep knowledge of our products.
A major portion of the landscape construction business is selling the right products for the right projects. When it comes to pavers and retaining wall systems with higher square foot prices, however, some contractors shy away from pitching them for fear of scaring away the customer. Unilock products like EnduraColor Plus pavers, while costing more, are actually very sellable to homeowners when presented in the right way.
Whether you operate a large company with an extensive team or you run a three-person operation, UniLyft will benefit your business in two specific ways. It will significantly reduce the time required to complete projects, and your staff will be both safer and less physically exerted during the paver installation process.
It’s been a few thousand years since the first roads were built, but there’s still no shortage of opinions about the right way to build them. For one reason or another, materials that have been good enough to get the job done for years come under scrutiny and are summarily deemed to be no longer acceptable. When it comes to building walkways or patios with interlocking concrete pavers, there’s one material commonly used for bedding that’s fallen out of favor (although not with everyone) in a big way: stone dust.
A meticulously hand-rendered landscape design plan is incomparable to anything else. The ability to draw every detail, from the smallest plant to the largest water feature, is a skill that creates functional works of art that, up until recently, drew customers. Today, however, landscape design has joined the rest of the design world: technology is king. As competition in the landscape industry becomes fiercer, owners are looking for anything that can help set them apart. 3D design is a great opportunity to do just that.
