Erosion Damage on Unstabilized Pathways

erosion damageComplications with hardscapes can shorten the lifespan of your pathway or outdoor project. A common issue which landscape architects need to consider is erosion damage.

If the pathway material is unstable, then it leads to greater erosion damage which will ruin the hardscape that you have developed. By using decomposed granite stabilizer you will extend the life of the pathway while deterring erosion damage.

Two Central Issues

There are two central issues that landscape architects face with erosion damage. 

The first is the impact that weather has on the aggregate surface or pathway. When water hits the pathway, it can cause fast deterioration. If the wrong materials are used, it heightens this effect.

The second issue is when there are pathways that are not able to have a flat surface. For weathering and other issues, steep or sloping surfaces lead to a greater number of issues with the erosion damage. 

Using decomposed granite stabilizer will reverse these central issues. Using naturally occurring materials naturally works with nature which leads to decreased erosion damage. For landscape architects, this means that you can expect the decomposed material to last longer, specifically because of the ability to absorb the rain or wet surface. This allows it to respond favorably to the elements as a result. 

The decomposed granite stabilizer is also known to compact into the surface materials, allowing application to uneven surfaces. You will find that there are several options to tamper the stabilizer that will result in a smooth, more even surface. Our stabilizer, Organic-Lock,  mixes naturally with the aggregate you are using. As a result, it specifically which alters the results and the quality pathway or hardscape that you create. 

You can upgrade the way that you work with your hardscape projects. Using Organic-Lock is one of the options to look at with your next application for find better results.
