Pouring Long Pavers


First time doing concrete and a client wants me to pour some long pavers, maybe 2' x 10'. I've watched a bunch of videos and think I have it down, not too complicated, but I've seen images of long pavers without joints. I thought at a certain length you had to put a joint in to prevent cracking. Is there a rule of thumb or a formula for how big a surface area is before it needs a joint?

Re: Pouring Long Pavers


What are they to be used for? When I think of "pavers", I'm thinking precast walkway pieces set on a sand base.
