You'll want the pavers to be at the same level as your lawn or any adjacent driveway, concrete slab, etc. Measure the thickness of the paver and add two inches (for the sand base). Dig out the area and spread your sand and then work the pavers into the right depth by pushing them back and forth. You may have to remove or add some sand to get each paver to set even or level with the next one and with the adjacent lawn or hardscape. Hope this helps!
