Paver Formulas

OCTO-PAVERS

3.75 pavers to the square foot.
Determine total square footage of the sidewalk/patio.
Multiply square footage by 3.75= approximate number of pavers.
EXAMPLE: 2’x10’ sidewalk..
2x10=20 square feet.
20x3.75=75 pavers (approximately)

OCTO-PAVER EDGERS

Octo-paver edgers will make up all four sides of a sidewalk/patio
EXAMPLE: 2’X10’ sidewalk
Add up the lengths of all edges, 2+2+10+10=24 lineal feet.
Multiply 24’x 12" = 288. Then divide 288 by 8.75(length of edger)=32.9.
This sidewalk/patio would require approximately 33 edgers.

I-STONE PAVERS

4 pavers to the square foot.
Determine total square footage of the sidewalk/patio.
Multiply square footage by 4 = approximate number of pavers.

I-STONE EDGERS

Edgers make up two sides of a sidewalk. You must determine which way the I-stones will lay on the ground.

EXAMPLE: 2’x10’ sidewalk.

I-stones laid lengthwise requires edgers on each 10’ side. Multiply 20’(two sides at 10’ each) x 12 = 240. Then divide 240 by 7.75(length of edger) = 30.96. This would require approximately 31 edgers.

I-stones laid crosswise requires edgers on each 2’ side. Multiply 4’(two sides at 2’ each) x 12 = 48. Then divide 48 by 7.75(length of edger) = 6.19. This would require approximately 7 edgers.

I-STONE ½

I-stone halves make up the two remaining sides of the sidewalk/patio. If the edgers make up the 10’ sides, I-stone halves will make up 2’ sides.

EXAMPLE: 2’x10’ sidewalk.
Multiply 4’(two sides at 2’ each) x 1.2 = 4.8

If the edgers make up the 2’ sides, I-stone halves will make up the 10’ sides.

EXAMPLE: 2’ x 10’ sidewalk.
Multiply 20’(two sides at 10’ each) x 1.2 = 12

HOLLAND PAVERS

4.5 pavers to the square foot.
Determine total square footage of the sidewalk/patio.
Multiply square footage by 4.5 = approximate number of pavers.
Holland pavers do not require edgers.

EXAMPLE: 2’x 10’ sidewalk.
2’ x 10’ = 20 square feet.
20 x 4.5 = 90
