Is paver base safe to use as ground cover on a layout? I won't be using it as ballast. I saw some paver base in a nice red color that would be great for look I need. Any help on this is very much appreciated.
Howdy Mark..what is paver base? Is it a powder or like maybe tile grout? Clue me in, I might be interested in it. However, watch out for a uniform "ground" color, Mother Nature uses all sorts of colors in one place.

Here's a link to a similar product. I got a bag in red color. Its a mix of sand and small rocks. Its normal use is to level ground to lay paving stones for a patio or walkway. I posted on another site and got a couple responses. I saw pictures of it in a layout and it works great. Its very cheap considering how much it can cover for one 50 lb. bag. Only thing I was worried about is it magnetic at all. Even though I am not planning to use it as ballast on my layout. I like the reddish color of the product.
I just took a trip to the Grand Canyon. I really like Mountain scenery leading up to the canyon with tall pine trees, junipers, and beautiful rock faces. I want to mimic that in a way. I will be using the paver base as well as other things to add to the scenery. Trees, structures, etc..
Your welcome Woodie! I just got the chopper and I am trying to make cuts with 1/4" pieces and no luck. I wonder if its the wrong type of wood? Am I suppose to soften the wood ahead of time?
