STONES GIVE MUCH PLAY IN YOUR GARDEN

Both the entrance to a house as a small garden path require a road. But what if instead of placing tiles, you opt for natural stone, marble, gravel or other crushed aggregate.

They will give you a more rustic appearance and, on the other hand, the positioning is much simpler.

Some of its qualities:

  • The stone is cheaper and easier to maintain than a lawn.
  • It is attractive, it does not give any problems and is easy to install.
  • Its use in planting areas helps protect the earth from sudden temperature changes and maintain higher soil moisture.
  • In terms of design harmonizes well with plants, and other materials such as wood, concrete or metal.
  • It conforms to irregular contours and is effective in both large areas and small.
  • Its variety and ease of color scheme, you can perform the most diverse forms and drawings, decorative motifs, etc.
  • And also give much play not only varieties, but also because its appearance changes according to the light and if the material is wet or dry.

To maintain the look and shape of the design you choose for ever, you have the option of using resins for flooring or crushed binder that compacted the surface.

WHAT IS A FIXER resin or aggregates and TRITURADOS?

It is a mono-component matt finished product, which does not alter virtually no aspect of the stone.

It is a specially manufactured and designed to blend with different types of aggregates used in landscaping, for constructing garden pavements, playgrounds, roundabouts, resin etc ..

ADVANTAGES OF APPLYING RESINS FOR PAVEMENTS OR AGGREGATES IN YOUR GARDEN

Hygienic solution that facilitates cleaning and better use of public spaces (sidewalks, parks, etc.) In addition to the removal of architectural barriers.

 

The aggregate is agglomerated and compacted, thus avoiding dirt from the environment by not being carried away by meteorological agents such as rain or wind.

It is a flexible product, so it does not provide rigidity to the pavement as opposed to other products on the market, very important in tree grates, when due to thermal shocks the existing pavement usually rises and breaks.

The product has a high resistance to the outside and does not turn yellow. Very important in the event that the pavement is made of white stone or light colors, where yellowing is easily noticeable.

 Nor does it provide any harmful product or in its manipulation when applied, nor once cured, that may affect the normal growth and health of the vegetation.

Its particular way of mixing (with concrete mixer), in order to avoid the formation of a continuous film of resin, but it covers the aggregate to obtain drainage. In the case of tree pits, this allows the vegetation to continue receiving the necessary rain or irrigation water and the diffusion of oxygen to the roots.

It also supposes a protection of the vegetation, especially in the case of the roots of the trees, since: it preserves the humidity of the ground in summer and conserves the heat of the ground in winter. In addition to limiting the growth of weeds, depending on the grain size of the aggregate.

On fragile soils it provides a fight against erosion.

It saves time and labor in the maintenance (pruning, irrigation and garbage removal) of garden and tree grates.

Specifically, in the case of trees, if the application (pouring of the material on the support) achieves a finish with many irregularities, hindering the normal transit of animals (such as dogs or cats) by not feeling comfortable in their footfall on the firm. It will be possible to prevent them from approaching and avoid bad smells.



HOW TO USE THE RESIN TO FIX AGGREGATES AND CRUSHES?



Our product is presented for use, it should not be diluted, since decreasing resin solids will lose adhesion capacity.

It is recommended, especially in high granulometries, to spread on the support prior to pouring the aggregate together with the product, an anti-grass sheet, which prevents the growth of weeds.

To prepare the mixture, pour the necessary amount together with the aggregate or suitable material for said application in the concrete mixer. Mix for 10 minutes until a completely homogeneous mixture is observed.

Then the mixture can be poured onto the mold or support directly and compacted.

Drying depends on the thickness of the flooring, for 4 cm of thickness 3 days of drying are recommended.

Cleaning of tools: rinsed with water.

Consumption depends on the type of aggregate selected. Examples:

  • For 7-12 mm grain size marble, 7% of the aggregate weight is required.

  • For gravel of 15-25 mm grain size, 3% of the aggregate weight is necessary

BASIC STEPS TO PLACING AGGREGATES IN YOUR GARDEN.



The installation of aggregates, gravel or gravel in a garden is very simple, so simple that you can do it yourself without any problem.







1.- Prepare the ground for the creation of a garden with aggregates, gravel or crushed.



The first step is to prepare the ground, the gravel or gravel that you are going to place in your garden, it is going to occupy a space, and a depth, and if that space does not exist, you must create it.

If you want to replace a lawn area with decorative garden gravel, you first have to tear out that lawn to be occupied by the gravel.

It is likely that in your garden there are elements that mark the maximum possible levels, I mean pavements for example, that mark a level that you will not be able to overcome with the level of the gravel, and that will then force you to “make room ”Pulling grass or lowering the level of the ground removing soil.

However, there is also the possibility of creating that space by placing garden borders, made with stones, concrete blocks, wood, aluminum, etc ...



2.- Choose the size or granulometry of gravel or other aggregates for creating a decorative garden



The thickness or layer of gravel that you must place will depend on the size or the granulometry, that is to say, the mm. which measures aggregate or gravel.

For very small gravels or gravels, even with 3 cm. thickness may be sufficient, however for large gravels it is necessary to calculate a greater thickness of the layer to be provided in order to cover the area well.

As a very general rule, we recommend a layer of between 5 cm. and 10 cm.

For medium size gravels (2 to 4 cm) we always calculate a 7 cm layer. If you have more depth to fill, you can use compacted sand that will be cheaper than other gravels.



3.- How much gravel do I need to cover the space that I have to fill in the decorative garden?



The gravel or gravel is sold by m3 or by kilos. You can also find it in bags per liter, but 1000 liters is 1 m3, so you can calculate the conversion, or even let yourself be advised by the gravel supplier.



If you want to calculate the amount of gravel or aggregate that you are going to need in m3, you must multiply the m2 of the area you want to cover by the cm. of thickness of layer that you want to contribute.



For example, if you have an area of ​​10 meters x 10 meters, they are 100 m2 (10 x 10 = 100).

If you want to lay a layer 5 cm deep, then you need 5 m3 (100 x 0.05 = 5). or 5,000 liters which is the same.



Advice! If you want to buy gravel or gravel by the kilo, the issue is a bit complicated when calculating the necessary amount. It will depend on what the gravel weighs, since not all of them weigh the same, as for example volcanic gravel is much less heavy than marble gravel

Guidance table that can help you if you want to calculate the required gravel per kilos or tons.





4.- Mesh to prevent the growth of weeds under the gravel or crushed.

It is advisable first, to treat the ground with a herbicide.

Then you should try to reduce its appearance to the maximum in the future, and this is achieved by placing a mesh on the ground and under the gravel so that the herbs do not grow.



This anti-grass mesh is perforated so that the water can pass through it, so on some occasion some weed will sneak in and appear, but it greatly reduces the appearance of weeds and that is why I would definitely advise you to use it to get the area of gravel is practically maintenance free. (A 130 gr / m2 mesh is recommended) or a geotextile mesh.



It is not advisable to use plastics that are not special, because the water will not drain, puddling the ground.

  

5.- Place the gravel or decorative gravel in the garden.

 

Once you have placed the plants you want to use for decorating your garden, you only have to place the decorative or compacted gravel, depending on the finish you want to achieve, as we have explained with the aggregate fixer or stone glue or binder for crushed.
