Concrete Pavers Patio Base - Need Help

I am planning to build a Concrete Pavers Patio, but I am having hard time choosing the right base. There are so many terms - crusher run, D1 Gravel, limestone crusher

This site seems to have all the possible options.
Gravel & Sand - Sutherland Landscape Center

Could anyone suggest which product is best for my needs.
I live in North NJ.


Thank you in advance!

The Roadbase would be the best according to the minimal description.

Compact the base ans make it follow the slope you want for your patio surfce.

Place 1" of concrete sand (uncompacted) that is screed to a uniform thickness.

Set the pavers and edge restrain and then sweep masonry sand (fine concrete sand) into the joints and vibrate with a plate compactor to stabilize, interlock and even out the surface.
