Installing

How to install GeoSteen®

1. Professional 

For the best results get your surface laid by a professional paver or landscape gardener.

2. Control 

Check the delivered paving stones by item code, colour, size and inspect for any irregularities.

3. Sand base

The sand foundation should be at least 20-30 cm thick. Keep the sand bed smooth while paving, this facilitates better laying of the paving.

4. Gravel layer 

Put a layer of fine gravel (3-5 cm) on the sand base to ensure good drainage. This also reduces the chance of efflorescence.

5. Fall (slope)

Place an edging kerb and prevent subsidence. Consider a slope gradient of 1 cm per meter.

6. Mixing

Always try to mix your product well by taking the stones you use out different packages. Lay blocks from top to bottom (in columns). Do not slide or scrape paving stones over each other but lift them directly out of the packaging.

6. Joint distance

Do not lay the paving tightly but leave a gap of at least 2 mm between stones. This will prevent any chipping of paving stones or tiles.

7. Compacting

After laying wipe the paving clean and compact using the smallest possible vibrating plate or with rubber. Riven or thin tiles are not suitable to compact using a vibrating plate.

8. Grout 

After vibrating fill the joints with weed-resistant sand or Aqua Color Joints. Do not leave this lying in heaps but brush this neatly into the joints.

9. Dont’s

Never saw on the paving surface and prevent dripping on the paving. Avoid walking over the paving with saw dust on your shoes/boots. Always rinse off the entire paving.
