Travertine pavers install similarly to other types of exterior stones and brick pavers.

Start with compaction using a powered plate compactor, or hand tamper in small areas. Make sure the moisture content of the base material or soil is just right. Soil that is too damp or too dry will not compact properly.

At the edges of your pavered area where there isn’t an existing surface to butt up against, be sure to install proper edge restraints. This can range from pre-fabricated flexible plastic edging to creating a “soldier” course using a paver secured by concrete as your edge.

Travertine pavers can be dry set as indicated above and allows for a much simpler installation and easy repairs should they be necessary in the future. Our travertine pavers can also be mud set on top of existing concrete.
Travertine pavers can be cut using the same blades and tools that are used to cut brick pavers or other natural stones. Any diamond blade should suffice, but be certain to wear the appropriate safety gear at all times.

To finish the installation, sand can be swept into the joints once everything is in place, or you can even use grout, or nothing at all.
