Pavers on top of concrete

Hello All,

Looking for some feedback on installing pavers on top of concrete. The area where I'd like to put the patio is largely dirt and a corner of the area has concrete at around 7.5inch below ground level which is how far I need to dig. Is it okay to leave as is and just add the base layer as long as the dirt and concrete are at the same level?

Concrete under pavers is common, especially for driveways.

just make sure your base material around/adjacent to the concrete is well compacted so that it does not settle because the concrete wont!
