Project Profile:

Residential Patio Support and Inserts

Project Summary

K. Dakin Design was looking for a unique and beautiful way to build two patios on the back of this residential house. Gravelpave2 was a great solution. Normally, a unsupported crusher run (breeze) is used in the space between the flagstones. Here, a larger gravel was filled into Gravelpave2. Gravelpave2 will prevent the rutting, erosion, and settlingnormally associated with the crusher run. The Gravelpave2 supported flagstone patio will provide alower maintenance and longer lasting patio. This patio with water feature and integral sandstone pavers. This project really shows off what the Gravelpave2 can do to reinforce gravel laterally and vertically.
