The paths on any summer cottage are equipped with movement routes according to and connect individual zones. Therefore, they must be, first of all, convenient. When creating them, you certainly need to take into account the features of the relief. And to start their arrangement, it is best to wait for some time, while the tenants lay the routes convenient for them.
Marking for paths is carried out using any cord and pegs driven into the ground. To determine straight yeasts, a number of pegs are placed along, pulling the cord, and if you need to do a turn, you can use two pegs as a circul.
After marking the width, remove the top ball of the soil about 20 cm thick. Given that the central part of the trench should be higher from the edges. This space is popularly called “trough”. It will further allow the removal of water from the track.
Today there are many options for decorating paths. They are usually made of tiles, tamped soil, wood, stone and other materials.
Little paths are considered the least costly. For their arrangement, 10 cm of soil is removed, and the resulting trench is tamped with rollers. By the way, beautiful plants can be planted on the sides so that it is pleasant to walk, but you also need to take care of them, for example, caring for clematis requires simple but regular affairs.
Herbal types of paths are sown by clover or grass. Such paths are often used to make an entrance to the garage. But that so that the wheels do not destroy the surface, for them the tracks are laid out of the tiles.
Country paths made of gravel consist of several layers of gravel, poured into the “trough”. At the same time, a large gravel with a layer of 7 cm is poured onto the bottom and tamped again, then a smaller thickness of 5 cm and strongly trim. The surface is aligned with a mixture of sand with clay in a proportional ratio of 1: 3 and up to 2 cm high and thoroughly touched, while watering with water. The final is a layer of small gravel 2 cm high. It is also thoroughly aligned, while watering with water.
