Path Grade Natural Paving
Path grade is ideal for patios, paths and gardens around your home and in parks and cycleways in your cities. It enables you to create enduring landscaping features with pebbles.
One very significant feature unique to Natural Paving is that the geotextile keeps the mats locked down under the pebbles, ensuring that the mats are never seen. The geotextile also protects special permeable bases from contamination.
At home, your mower or BBQ will glide across the paving as though it was on a hard surface.
Path grade is also suitable for paving paths for cycles or light vehicles, such as mobility scooters and golf carts etc. It is also good for hard-stand areas for trailers and caravans (if a vehicular base-course is used). It’s ideal for greenhouse floors enabling excess water to drain away, and providing a thermal mass to help regulate heat.
