Wall Types and Requirements

Gravity Walls Vs Geo Grid Reinforced Walls

Calgary has a very different local climate where the weather is constantly changing. Chinooks are a nice part of that change, but it can impact how paver stone patios should be installed. Traditional methods included a layer screeded bedding sand, paver installation and more 5mm sand to fill in the cracks.

With the constant freeze and thaw Chinooks cause, this method had a high failure rate. It was also susceptible to damage by the smallest amount of running water, ants and weed infiltration.

Paver Installation

After seeing old sand based patio failures over a long time we knew there must be a better way to ensure our clients have a paver stone patio that would stand the test of time.

We found it, tested it and now exclusively build our patios that don’t use bedding sand or regular jointing sand. Our base materials are made up of aggregates that eliminate erosion, ant problems and weed growth. 

If you are looking for some extra protection we also offer a robust engineered base.
