What could be the plastic covering for the tracks in the country, and it is better than traditional concrete? Let's analyze in steps, which are made of such tracks, what are the advantages of various materials, and more importantly, how to lay a covering their hands 2 embodiments.

A good plastic track for a summer residence can become a true pearl of the landscape.

A good plastic track for a summer residence can become a true pearl of the landscape.

In fact, there are only two suitable for this purpose material - concrete and plastic tile tracks in the country. Of course, there is still a creative type bottoms of plastic bottles, but these options, to put it mildly, does not fit all.

traditional concrete

This coating can be poured solid with concrete or use concrete paving tiles of different species. Honestly, too much difference between these options is not as longevity and complexity of everything they are almost equal.

Concrete material is convenient, but heavy.

Concrete material is convenient, but heavy.

There are medium and quite a decent option for questioning - is a concrete grating. In its composition it is similar to paving tiles, only slightly different form.

Concrete grille looks good, but these units are not reinforced, and therefore, if the grate properly put, it will not live long. In addition, the concrete blocks are very heavy, respectively, you will have to hire trucks for transportation plus during installation, this "exercise" very few people will benefit.

Concrete lattice quite difficult to style.

plastic coating

Modern tiles made of plastic for tracks can be of different types, and each option has its own purpose, configuration and composition.

Parquet for street or deking

Garden parquet floor - in the production of such a coating is actually used natural wood, more specifically wood waste. If to tell in a few words, the wood dust is mixed with a polymeric filler and then the composition is poured into molds.

The proportion of wood dust in these products varies from 50 to 80%, in general, the more a part of a natural material, the higher the price of garden parquet. Good deking appearance virtually identical to the present parquet.

Garden parquet is deservedly considered one of the most beautiful coatings.

If we talk about the advantages, in addition to the luxurious appearance of this coating is very durable, it is with easily withstand the weight of the vehicle, plus the normal warranty period starts on the tiles 15 years.

But the garden parquet is the most expensive among similar coverings for questioning, and most importantly, it must be properly mounted on the open ground it is not stowed. First you have to build a level and solid foundation, preferably a concrete screed. On the basis of assembled crate and just attached himself deking crate.

Modular coating to give

Modular tiles for garden paths is a good alternative to expensive dekingu. Usually modules make the square, but now everything is more common rectangular or even polygonal model.

In such tiles are many tangible advantages:

  • Plastic itself is lightweight and can be transported in a car trunk or even in a bag;
  • Polymers from which such a tile is strong enough at the correct assembly and on a level surface, this coating can withstand the weight of the car;
  • The modular plastic tile tracks in the country is not afraid of sunlight, that is, does not fade with time;
  • The color scheme of the modular plastic tiles is large enough, you will not be difficult to choose the color for the design of your site;
  • Price for this tile is quite acceptable when compared with the garden parquet flooring, it is much lower;
  • Under these tracks do not need to lay the groundwork, they are mounted directly on the ground or any suitable surface;
  • Often the cottage is designed for seasonal living, and if you fear for the safety of the materials in your absence, the plastic modules can be dismantled and hide;
  • But perhaps the main advantage of this tile is considered to be its mobility, initially this coating was invented for quick resettlement durable demountable platforms and areas on the ground or lawn. Assembly instructions There simply, to equip the track or playground in the country can be a maximum of a couple of hours, but more on that later.
Plastic is a versatile material that is suitable not only for decorating walkways.

Of notable disadvantages have only one and the relative. Many designers believe that modular tiles of plastic for paths and catwalks looks cheap and does not fit well into the natural interior, but it's a matter of taste.

Grating for lawns

I have already mentioned concrete grids and if you do not want to mess with heavy concrete blocks, or not like the look of the concrete on the wild, it would be a good alternative to plastic lawn lattice.

The main advantage of such lattices, I would call them invisible. They are going to the same in a modular fashion, but unlike the previous version of the lattice pritaplivayutsya into the ground and into the cells planted lawn grass.

As a result, over time, the very grating is almost invisible. You get a high quality, and most importantly, a strong grass without the mud, which is able to withstand heavy loads.

Lawn grid high strength is different, it is possible to equip even parking lot in the country.

Two variants of arrangement of tracks plastic

As I have said, the garden parquet rarely used for paving in country houses, its place on the terraces and around swimming pools, As for the tracks, they are pretty quick and relatively cheap to build using a modular tile or turf lattice.

Variant № 1. The modular plastic tiles

All coatings of such a plan can be divided into 2 types: it is almost monolithic plastic with holes for drainage and modular tile lattice surface.

In the photo on the left shows a monolithic slab with holes for drainage.

Modular tile lattice surface on its performance practically does not differ from solid models, but it looks much more spectacular.

Plus it's a much more elastic coating. After assembly, a "carpet" can be laid on any surface, it will gradually go around all the bumps, which is good for arranging the original landscape design.

Flexible tile ERFOLG.

One of the most popular tile is now considered by ERFOLG firm.

This tile is available in two variations - is reinforced and lightweight.

In the photo on the left shows the reinforced tiles, and on the right relief.

The lower part of such tiles is equipped with powerful columns, thus repeatedly increasing carrier coating ability.

Typically, this tile is placed on a solid foundation. This coating is intended for arranging the loading surface, for example, car parks.

The lite version of the lower bars are much thinner.

This tile is designed for laying on the lawn, earth or sand.

Each tile has a bracket legs and by means of which the cover and connected together.
The connection process is shown in detail in the video in this article.

Variant № 2. Lawn plastic grille

This lattice can be mounted in two ways - a classic and simplistic.

classic installation.
  • stage 1. According to the rules you must first dig a pit for the foundation for the track depth of 20 cm;

  • step 2. The trench is filled and compacted sand-gravel cushion thickness of 5-20 cm;

  • step 3. Sand-gravel cushion was covered with geotextile cloth that weeds do not try;

  • Step 4. Poured on geotextile and lightly compacted ground leveling layer of 2-3 cm;

  • Step 5. On the leveled ground stacked lawn grid;

  • Step 6. Further in the lattice cell is filled with soil and planted the seeds of both grass.

I do not see much sense to mount such a powerful, multi-step basis, it is much easier to make a lighter version.

Passenger car a lawn survive, but more often it is not necessary.

  • Step 1. Dig a pit depth of about 200 mm and its tamped;

  • Step 2. Pour sand cushion 2-3 cm thick and lightly tamped it.

  • Step 3. Lay geotextile.

  • Step 4. Pour over the geotextile about 100 mm fertile soil and lightly tamped it;

  • Step 5. Connect the modules;

On modules have hooks, but they are not reliable and they are few, so I recommend to pull the cell with plastic collars.

  • Step 6. Fall asleep cell half the land;

  • Step 7. Pour water to the land in the cells a little sat;
table_pic_att149393825925
  • Step 8. On the ground pour watered the seeds of lawn grass and to fill up the missing layer of fertile soil.

For such purposes the land must be taken loose, so that it is free to fall asleep in the cell.

After the grass rises, lawn grid is virtually invisible.
