pavement

I am sorry that I am asking lot of questions.

Anyone made a pavement with a mould or pathmaker? If so is it easy to do so?

Re: pavement

There's no problem with asking as many questions as you like @ambily!

 

But it might be good to give members a bit more information about what you'd like to do. Is this a project as part of your front garden makeover?

 

Is it just a path for walking on or is it to replace your concrete driveway? How long is the path going to be?

Hi @ambily 

Generally Paths and drainage systems are required around houses built on reactive soils

If this is your situation then I would recommend you start here

Foundation maintenance and footing Performance

Post back with photos, PM or email appsb4ubuild(at)gmail if you require engineering/construction data, costs & details

Note a gmail a/c is required for the latter

cheers

Re: pavement

That looks easier than the old press the patern into the wet top that you had to get the alignment perfect each time. As long as it releases freely it should be easy to do any adjustments while it is still wet.

 

Around the foundations I would slope it to drain away and grout with a sand and cement mix to stoop seep in.

Re: pavement

I think if your looking at a large area splash out and get two of them to speed up your build times.
