Got a Landscaping Project? There’s Plenty We Can OfferMarch 24, 2017
Have you got an area to landscape? Will you be using gravel or a decorative aggregate? TBS can help.
Whatever you’re going to have as the visible surface, what goes underneath is every bit as important. If you’ve ever topped up a gravel path year on year and wondered where the last lot went, it’s simple: it’s almost certainly sunk into the subsoil.
The answer is to use a stabilisation membrane. TBS stocks Stratacheck, which comes in two sizes: a 2 x 25m roll or (for big jobs) a 4.5 x 100m roll. Here’s some of what it offers:
– High porosity, allowing rainwater to be naturally absorbed into the ground
– Conforms with SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems) regulations
– Stops decorative aggregates from being lost into the sub-soil
– Reduces the depth of sub-base required
– Can be laid directly under turf – for use in trafficked areas
What’s more, it comes with a 40 year guarantee! But please note: Stratacheck is not a weed suppressant. So for a gravel drive or path, you should consider a weed membrane too. TBS sells Weedcheck, in 1 x 14m or 2 x 25m rolls.
When it comes to what to put on top, there is plenty of choice. TBS can offer you the following, in Big Bags or 25kg bags:
shingle in either 20mm (gravel) or 10mm grade (pea shingle),
slate chippings in blue, green or plum,
Cotswold chippings (creamy white)
flamingo chippings, a classy blend of grey, pink and white – looks great when wet!
For any other aggregate and landscaping enquiries, give our Sales team a call at any TBS branch.
