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 3-5 cm moist levelling layer of sand on top of this. Place levelling rails in the sand.

  • Use a sliding bracket (a board or similar) to level out the surface.

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 slaps from sliding, establish support along edges by laying edge slaps in a thin concrete layer. Edge restraints can be used as an alternative.

  • Sweep dry, fine sand between the slabs and vibrate the slab paving gently.
