Unit Garden Paths

Landscaping or backyard garden plot necessarily includes equipment tracks. On how well they planned and carried out depends largely on appearance of the site. Among people with no experience construction, is widely believed that enough to pour on the ground slag or gravel layer of 3-5 cm and compacted, and the track is ready. However, when the first heavy rains, not to mention the spring thaw, it raskisnet and become a dirt. To avoid errors, you must adhere to certain rules. The basic requirement – a convex profile that ensures a good flow of water.

In general the slope of the track axis to the edges should be in the range of 2-3 cm per meter (Wide). The depth of the base tab track (topsoil removed) is 15-20 cm Material: construction waste (broken bricks, remnants of concrete and mortar), slag, natural rock (rock), crushed stone, gravel, dolomite. Finished track must perform a few inches above the soil surface, or grass, over the years growing, ground lift, and the track will be recessed into the ground on it will stagnate water. Sediment-path most easily done Sediment track. The work begins with the markup, then remove the soil to a depth of 15 cm, so that the bottom of the resulting cavity was convex.

Seizure and rammed her fall asleep in a large base of slag, gravel or bout brick layer 10-12 cm base watered and tamped. Then poured on top, keeping track convex profile, small slag layer 4-5 cm and also tamped. Even better, the base coat layer of waterproof clay fatty 1-2 cm thick, then pour a small and compact slag. To arrange bulk tracks raised curb is not recommended, since they degrade the drain. Sediment track of slag, gravel, building waste: a) profile extraction, and b) track from the slag: 1 – base (a large slag), 2 – cover (with small slag coarse-grained sand), and c) track from the rubble and construction waste. 1 – base dolomite bout bricks, pebbles, etc.) 2 .- moisture barrier (Heavy clay 1-2 cm), 3 – cover (gravel, fine dolomite, slag with a coarse sand). BRICK FINISH tracks with a beautiful and durable coatings are made of red brick. It is best to use red perezhzhenny brick, the so-called 'ladle', resistant to moisture. These cheap waste brick production may well be replaced by a brick-conditioned. Preparatory work for the tracks with a brick surface are the same as for Sediment from The only difference is that as a base layer of coarse sand is used in 10-12 cm sand is spread, keeping the convex profile track, and abundantly moistened with water. Then placed the bricks on the chosen scheme (see fig.). Laying of schemes 1 and 2 allows the use of half bricks and corners. Brick laying can be carried out differently (Figure 3). Laying on its side (Figure 4) can be recommended only for small volumes of work or for road sections with increased load. Brick laid in a wooden block pritrambovyvayut. Along the edges of the brick paths brick laid on edge to form a low curb. Freshly laid track should be watered abundantly water. As you can master the technology of Pavement with his own hands. But this is a topic for another article, tiling also requires compliance with technology
