When it comes to repairing a sunken paver, the first step is to assess the issue and understand what is causing it. To begin, use a small, flat blade screwdriver to remove the cobblestones. You may need to use a pair of screwdrivers, one at each end of the paver, to ease the movement process. If the paving stones are snug together, hit them with a rubber mallet to loosen them up.
Once you have removed all of the sunken pavers, take care not to damage them or the cobblestones that surround them. If they feel stuck, you can gently tap the surrounding cobblestones with a mallet. This pressure can help lift them up. Just make sure you don't damage them and don't hit them with the mallet while using the screwdriver. In some cases, sunken pavers are caused by natural changes in the soil or extended use.
To repair these pavers, you will need to fill in the area with sand or gravel and then replace the paver. Make sure that you tamp down the sand or gravel before replacing the paver so that it is level with the surrounding cobblestones. Once you have replaced the paver, you may need to add more sand or gravel around it to ensure that it is level with its surroundings. You can also use a sealant on top of the paver to protect it from further damage. Finally, make sure that you clean up any debris from your repair job.
