Artificial grass patio, Saggart Dublin

We were asked to install artificial grass, which is a popular option amongst busy homeowners. The existing area was quite damp and mucky, so excavation of the existing area was needed.

This process was completed in 3 different stages to compact it well and ensure no future sinking will arise. Paving grit was installed to get the final levels and the membrane was set to stop any unwanted weeds peaking through….

Porcelain Patio, Lucan Dublin

Gravel driveway, Rathgar, South Dublin

  We visited another household in Rathgar. Early in the morning, digging up of existing topsoil base took place.  We installed a membrane which will have the benefit of helping to prevent unwanted weed to peak through. Then we installed hardcore base and used wacker plate, which vibrates to compact the ground firmly. Next we lay a thin sand layer before the final layer which was the pink quartz gravel 20mm thick. Sand binds with the hardcore to close the gaps between the stones and keeps gravel from mixing with the hardcore. Then came the time to install yellow granite…
