Potential installation problem?

I love this, but I think the tendency is to put it on top of concrete. In our part of the country that would be an invitation to disaster as the water underneath would heave it and break it.
How should the soil underneath be prepared?

With the Xeripave Super Pervious Pavers seen here you would need to put them on a clean crushed rock base that is typically 4" - 6" in depth to give space for the water to collect during a rainstorm before it absorbs into the subsoil. If your soil is more clay based, you may want to go a little deeper than that. Use a 3/4" clean crushed rock for the base, lay down a sheet of filter fabric, then do your top layer in 1/2" clean crushed rock. Make sure that is all very well compacted, then lay your Xeripavers on top and compact again using a piece of plywood between the compactor and the pavers. There's more info on our website at www.perviouspaving.com.
