How should I lay gravel sheets?
Gravel grids are indispensable if you want to use gravel. It is of course also important that the gravel mats are installed correctly. Below, we explain which steps you need to go through to lay gravel grids in the right way.
1. The right foundation
The subsoil of your foundation should have sufficient load-bearing capacity. Make sure to establish a foundation with 15 to 25 cm of dense sand or stone rubble (mixed granulate). The strength of the gravel pavement depends on the load-bearing capacity of the subsoil and not on the gravel grid or the gravel. Of course, you do not require the same load-bearing capacity for all applications of the grids.
Foundation for gravel grids in the garden
Want to use gravel sheets in your garden? Then a high load-bearing capacity is not necessary. The existing soil can be sufficient if it is well tamped. However, we prefer to opt for a foundation of dense sand with a thickness of at least 15 cm.
Foundation for gravel grids in your driveway
When making a driveway, the surface must have a high load-bearing capacity. Therefore, provide a bottom layer of at least 25 cm of sand or mixed granulate. Professionals and craftsmen tend to prefer a combination of the two, often going for 20 cm of mixed granulate. On top of this, 5 cm of sand to create a flat surface.
2. Weed membrane
Between the sand and the grid, lay down a weed membrane to prevent any weeds from poking through the gravel. Ensure an overlap of 15-20 cm between different sheets of fabric. For a clean finish at the edges, fold the weed membrane in half. Secure the membrane with ground hooks.
3. The gravel grids
Connect the gravel grids by using the simple click-in system. It is important to use garden edging and leave a gap of 1 to 2 cm between the edge and the grids. It is unfortunately not possible to order custom gravel grids. However, you can easily shorten grids with the help of a handsaw or jigsaw.
Tip: Start filling the gravel mats on the side where you have the gravel. Work backwards from there. This allows you to drive over the gravel-filled slabs with a full wheelbarrow and prevent damage to the gravel sheets.
