    Default Laying crazy pave over a concrete pathway

    Hi all,
    I have a concrete path leading up to my house, which is very old and tired.
    Rather than digging it up, I was considering laying crazy pave directly ontop of it.
    Itís not particularly long, maybe 1m wide x 12 long- I figure at least with the company Crete base Iíll have a level surface - and wonít have to deal with disposing of the old concrete.
    Any constructive thoughts appreciated.
    Ta.

    Is the current concrete structurally sound? If there are any cracks get rid of it and start fresh.

    If structurally sound, go for it.

    I've used the same method as Mike: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiFazUnKwd4
    Works well to lay/grout all in one hit

    And all done in a white long sleeve shirt. Impressive
