Patio and walkway stabiliser

1

  • Remove about 20 cm soil and unroll the first layer of fabric overlapping the edges. Overlap lanes with 20 cm.
  • Place a layer of about 10-15 cm  graded aggregate.
  • Hose the graded aggregate layer gently. Compact several times with e.g. a plate vibrator.

2

  • Place levelling rails (for instance ¾” water pipe) in the graded aggregate layer.
  • Place 1-2 cm moist levelling layer of sand on top of this.
  • Use a sliding bracket (a board or similar) to level out.

3

  • Unroll the second layer of fabric and make sure it is flush with the edge. Overlap lanes with 20 cm.
  • Place the slabs 10-15 cm from the edge of the fabric.
  • To prevent the slabs from sliding, fill up with soil along the edges of the slabs. (Side support is important).
  • Sweep dry, fine sand between the slabs and vibrate the slab paving gently.
