Although it might not seem like it at the moment, it'll soon be spring, the perfect time to start getting your garden ready for summer.
On solid ground
A good solid base is essential to the longevity of your project. There are many different techniques for laying Indian Sandstone paving, here at BMG Stones, Kent's premier Sandstone paving supplier, we recommend excavating a minimum of 150mm below damp course to allow for correct installation of the paving. If no excavation is required, we recommend edging restraints to ensure correct compaction of the base material. A minimum of 100mm base consisting of compacted type 1 aggregate should then be laid to create a secure and stable foundation for the paving. Consideration should be given to soil conditions when laying the base and increased if necessary for softer soils. Compaction should be completed in layers in depths of approximately 75mm to prevent future settling and subsidence.
