I'm in the process of designing a paver patio for my side yard, I've learned about the base rock layer, tamping, sand screeding, polymeric sand fill, etc.
However, the one thing I cannot find any information on is how to tie it into the existing brick wall. This area of the house is off the garage, so there is no basement to worry about, just standard brick exterior on slab foundation.
Do I need an intermediate/border material, or can I simply start my pavers from the brick wall?
Aside from the minimum slope of 1/8" per foot, is there any concern about water seepage into the brick/foundation from the base rock?
Do I need a sealant of some kind?
