I have a slopped area along the side of my driveway that gets heavy foot traffic. I am looking for a low maintenance solution. Grass doesn't grow there. Can I lay pavers without leveling flat?

You can lay pavers so they follow the grade rather than laying flat. I'd dig the area and lay a base of sand, then push the pavers in so they are level with the soil. Obviously one end will need to be buried deeper than the other to follow the lay of the land. Good luck with your project!
