Hardscape – Oh that’s Hardscape - EZ-Roll Gravel Pavers

EZ-Roll Gravel Pavers

The sound of crushed gravel while walking, gives one the illusion of walking down a country lane without a care in the world. Using an organic paving surface can be rewarding if done properly – it is not as easy as just throwing down some pea gravel and putting some patio furniture out. Compaction is the key, unless you want the area to feel like you are walking in deep sand you will want to make sure the area feel compacted. EZ-Roll Gravel pave System from NDS, is one of the systems avaible that we have used here locally to produce an organic (gravel) paving surface that is firm enough to support patio furniture, wheel barrow and even cars without that sinking feeling.

The EZ-Roll Gravel Pave System consists of recycled plastic cells that are attached to a geotextile fabric. The pavers come in large rolls and are rolled onto a compacted base (6” Depth) and stakes are installed to keep the pavers in place. Washed angular stone with a size between 3/16” and 3/8” are used to fill in the paver cells. The edge of the gravel surface should be finished with a raised stone edge to give the area a more defined look.

EZ-Roll Gravel pavers can be used for driveways, patios, paths, golf cart paths and parking lots….any pace that you would typically use concrete flatwork but want a more organic feeling. The pavers are strong night to handle vehicle traffic, but are porous enough to allow filtration of stormwater runoff.
