concrete path On the one hand, everything is clear: lay the track only when finally formed the site plan.


«Road construction" better to hold immediately after the construction of the house.Then the canvas tracks can be put almost all the waste and save on garbage disposal and purchase of rubble and gravel.

On a small plot of 12 acres to build a capital expedient to track and several auxiliary (in the garden and the garden).

begins the main road entrance to the estate, "bottled" a large area in front of the house and sweeping curves, go to the manor buildings and the most visited places.Therefore, before you start digging under her canvas, the first all "Measure seven times": because the main trail not only incur a practical purpose, linking objects on the site, but will be almost the most important of his artistic and aesthetic elements, move or evenfix which will not be without prejudice.

planning basic track count so that she shared the big green lawn in front of house, and would have pa

ssed over the boundary of the individual zones.On a narrow area it generally should be routed only along the fence.It should be such that it can be enjoyed in any weather, it did not require a lot of grooming and appearance has always been appealing.

At the same time can serve as a track center line garden or section between the ridges, Paving tiles be invisible or, on the contrary, to be the center of attention, emphasized the group of trees, shrubs or flowers.It all depends on your taste.Do not plant trees close to the trail: overgrown crowns, blocked the road, will not interfere with traffic.


course, natural ground.But it should still work.Irregularities should be smooth, then dig a ditch marking the desired width and depth of bayonet spade.At the bottom of the ditch is placed coarse gravel, gravel, debris, or slag 10-centimeter layer.Backfill abundantly watered and rammed up until all the water is absorbed.Then poured 5-7 cm finer material and again ram, and on top - 2-5 cm of sand.Only on the prepared surface is laid cover.

what and how Covered?

paving of square concrete slabs on the cover to prevent water accumulation, flooring should be with a light longitudinal and transverse slope.Cross-section made slightly convex or perfectly horizontal.

Although the market is littered with a variety of materials - beautiful mosaic tiles, natural stone, pavers, granite screenings, color and so on plastobetonom. E., Many prefer to use simpler materials: sand, gravel backfill from the bound (containing clay), pebbles, recessedin concrete, stones, granite gravel, handmade concrete slabs.

main advantages of sandy roads - cheapness and porosity.They are not retained rainwater, but they require constant attention: it is necessary to pour the sand, align, tamp and ukatyvat.

practical, beautiful and durable track with patterns of red brick, iron ore overheated.The bricks are placed on drawing on the sand or on the basis of the flat edge is filled with sand and then slit.Such desirable for the sake of harmony track suit only where the base of the fence or the house is made of brick.

more practical and durable track of reinforced concrete.It is relatively inexpensive, but aesthetically this coating loses others.You can enhance its decorative, decorated by jointing natural stone.From monolithic concrete pour good track car entry.

tracks often hold of the square concrete slab the size 50-55sm.Yes, it's smarter, but looks much better track of the plates of different sizes.To make it look more interesting, make her a few sites with a combined coating, for example, Pave some place with cobblestones, pour gravel and tamp.And anyway, for a variety of textures and colors included in the general areas of tiling, tiled brick flat, herringbone, on edge or end.You can also remove some of the coating on the tiles and place them loosely laid on the mortar with a wooden bar and a sledgehammer pebbles the size of 50-75 mm and a sprinkle of colorful pebbles.

If not enough plates, put their islands.Particularly impressive it looks on grassy areas, lawns.The surface of "islands" should be at the soil level, otherwise it will be difficult to cut the grass.


final touch which will give the tracks a finished look - this border.He must tiles curly rise by no more than 5 cm. Make it out of earth, stone, brick, slate (corrugated and smooth) boards.

Widespread method Installation of borders made of red brick, sunken into the ground "in the area."It is quite simple and economical, but, in our opinion, much better looks from the curb bricks, set end.When the curved shape of the border joints between the bricks to fill in the solution and flush embroider.

Wooden curb can be used as an unobtrusive limiter surfaces lined with bricks, blocks and tiles.The tree must be carefully processed antiseptic.Border slate set close to covering the ground and utaplivajut sledgehammer blows on the planks.

On the external side of the border in a narrow strip can be planted creeping perennials, fit and low annuals and vegetable crops stunted.

For tracks of concrete slabs on sandy loam enough sand bed thickness of 10 cm. If any plate shift, it is always possible to remove and pour the sand, put in place.Seams can wipe cement mortar, sand or fill zamyt soil and sow grass.

of tracks on loam and peat bogs requires a good underlying basis.First, align the tiles laid on the cord.Gently tap it with a hammer handle using a level, check if it is laid horizontally.But before thoroughly pripechatat heavy hammer through a thick board.

garden path with natural stone carefully observe the direction indicated by a cord, and after will be laid one transverse row of tiles, check the pattern of his bias.If you need to, then tap the tile, providing a drain.Likewise lay second and following rows, each time checking them laying on the cord.Under the plates were too low, add the sand, and those who were high, then tap the handle of the hammer.Using a wooden block adjust the tiles to each other as closely as possible.At the same time, avoid the long longitudinal grooves.After completion of the work fill the gap with sand and generously to spill water.

boards must rise above ground level at 3-4 cm, so as not to drown when the inevitable rain.

Lanes 8-10-cm coating of monolithic concrete is poured macadam on the basis of the same thickness, and the bed itself makes little deeper.After marking the edges of the ditch dug set wooden formwork edging boards so that the edge extends approximately 5 cm. Boards promazhte machine oil, did not stick to the concrete.Then, the base should be leveled, compacted and drench, pour concrete, dividing a track on the meter segments bookmarks of the boards.Later they were removed, and the grooves are filled with soil.

to the coating had no voids, which could collect water from the insidious destroy property during freezing, carefully tamped concrete.Concrete paths require appropriate curb edging.Special curbs (not brick) or buy or make handicraft.Complex, for example, a curved shape, made of monolithic reinforced concrete in the formwork with plywood, hardboard, sheet iron.The valve must be placed so that it does not protrude on the front surface, or rust stains are formed.

recessed in the ground part of the curb height, usually equal to the aerial.Poured concrete in the formwork is kept periodically hydrating, for a week, but no more than 10 days.
