Garden Paving Slabs FAQ
Do You Need to Cement Paving Slabs?
Slabs are installed on a mortar mix that often, but not always, includes cement as part of its composition. Though cement isn’t always necessary when laying down paving stabs, it is generally recommended. Cement makes the paving safer and more secure among other benefits.
The silver lining, installing paving slabs is easy and straightforward regardless of the mortar mix you use. So it shouldn’t present an issue.
What Is Best to Put Under Paving Slabs?
Though it depends on the type of the paving slab, your environment, and the foundation of your building, generally speaking, a 4:1 to a 5:1 ratio of sharp sand to cement will be a very decent mortar mix on which you can lay your stabs.
Getting the ratio right is important as it will impact the longevity of your pavement, but as long as you get the ratios correct and you buy high-quality paving slabs from reputable providers like Timberstore, you should be fine!
Can You Lay Slabs on Soil?
The short answer is yes, it is technically possible to lay slabs on the soil without additional preparations.
The long answer: Though yes it is possible to lay slabs on the naked soil, it is not recommended as it will meaningfully impact the quality of the installation, especially if the type and composition of the soil is undesirable.
There are steps you can take to improve the quality of the installation. These include digging the soil, making sure it is even before installation, cleaning up any debris, etc. Though, ultimately, as we said, this isn’t recommended.
Should I Lay Slabs on Sand or Cement?
Neither. Typically, slabs are laid on a mortar mix that is a mixture of both sand and cement. However, the precise measurements vary somewhat depending on the type of the paving slab and the soil.
If you prepare a proper mortar mix and buy high-quality porcelain or sandstone slabs from shops like Timberstore, you’ll have attractive, reliable, and durable paving.
