Construction

Construction (1)

The construction is made up of an interconnected lattice structure allowing the grids to also be used on slopes and angled areas. Areas such as these are prone to deterioration due to wear and tear and sometimes simply just gravity. If you’re looking to install car parking on grass or perhaps a stone driveway then Grid Guard’s reinforcements are ideal due to the diverse areas they can be implemented.

Our pavers are normally laid on a free draining stone base, this eliminates the requirement for the usual drainage pipework. This also returns the storm water to the water table relieving a lot of the pressure on sewers. If you’re wishing to install a gravel drive or maybe a plastic driveway; dependent on the existing ground conditions we may be able to offer a reduced dig or no dig solution. If you’re worried about the financial costs or you need to stick to a specific time scale, the dig or no dig solution could be very beneficial to you as both are severely restrained.

Additionally, if there are areas of grass which are free-draining and flat, the turf pavers we use can be inverted and pressed into the existing grass. This is done without the conventional dig-out and build-up of a sub-base, this is sometimes referred to the flip and clip or no-dig solution. This allows ground reinforcement to take place without the usual expense of a full installation. If you are looking to install some ground reinforcement mesh where you currently have trees and you’d like to protect the roots, this method is ideal.
