Anybody know any good sites that show you how to lay or fix uneven brick driveways. Last year I had to remove bricks to the garage entrance for about 3 feet deep and the end at the curb for 3 feet deep. This year I have to do the middle. I currently build it back up with crushed stone and level it with a lawn roller then lay the brick down and hit it with the end of a 2x4 and level it. I raise or lower it to make it match the one beside it. I thought of using a gas pounder but will end up with high and low spots that I'd have to fix. I really don't want to use straight sand for the top 2 inches because when I see brick driveways in subdivisions, they are all sunk at the garage entrance and where the car/truck wheels park. I think this sand bit is the cause being slowly washed away. Any advice?
