Driveway Edge Trim

We’ve got pavers for trim on a clients driveway. Problem is the pavers (24”x12”) have to go around a pretty gnarly radius. The owner is going to want to keep the length (24) of the pavers intact. Will this work? Is it going to require 4 cuts per paver?

Re: Driveway Edge Trim

Lay normal. Cut the radius. Add a border with smaller blocks.

Re: Driveway Edge Trim

Adding a border course makes it a lot easier and a cleaner install.

Re: Driveway Edge Trim

Use the "waste" pieces with the cut to halve the angle and depth of cut needed, still cutting both longside. Saw the driveway to fit the un cut 12" end i....

out of Box answer: just lay all pieces in running bond and cut the curve in the edge(s)? Easy peasy

variation: as above with basket weave....this would be my preference.

switch running bond at center of curve to other axis, I.e. turn it 90 degrees.

Next time edge , then driveway, Much cheaper.

what is the tightest radius in feet?
