Yes. Pacific Interlock paving stones are an excellent choice for residential vehicular traffic. While the paving stone itself may have a minimum compression capacity of 8000 psi, the quality of the base rock installation can enhance or diminish the overall project. Proper base installation is imperative to insure the stability and success of your project. The determining factor for the depth of the base rock is the composition of the native soil and the planned usage of the project. The typical base rock depth for light duty installations such as sidewalks, patios, etc, would be 3- 4 inches and medium duty installations such as driveways or minimal use roads would be 5- 7 inches. If the native soil tends to be unstable, such as heavy sand or heavy clay, the base rock depth would need to be increased to improve the stability of the project. If soil conditions are less than ideal or exposure to heavy water drainage is needed, increasing the depth of the base is warranted and should be determined by a qualified engineer, at which point the engineer specifications will supersede standard recommendations
