## How do you charge for pavers?

To purchase and install most pavers, expect to pay an average of \$8 to \$25 per square foot, according to HomeAdvisor. If you choose a high-end stone, the cost could rise to \$50 per square foot. Preparing the ground to last a long time and installing the pavers is a time-intensive process.

## How do you calculate pavers?

To determine how many paver stones you need:

1. Multiply the length and width (in feet) of the area you’re paving.
2. Multiply the length and width (in inches) of your bricks or paving stones.
3. Divide the brick or paver’s surface area by 144 to convert to square feet.
4. Divide the total paving area by the paver’s surface area.

## Do you need gravel under pavers?

The principle to remember is this: your pavers are only as stable as the base they’re sitting on. That’s why you’ll need to lay a substantial gravel base on top of your dirt. Use road base gravel so that you get the right mix of fine and coarse aggregates for the best compaction.
