Ennobling suburban area, it should be remembered: the closer to the natural landscaping natural conditions, the greater the likelihood of a full-fledged country rest. We appreciate the nature of the fresh air, greenery and fragrance of flowers, the yield of vegetable and fruit crops, and paved or concrete coating reminiscent of sultry metropolis. It turns out that even the parking lot can be transformed into a beautiful green carpet instead of the traditional concrete platform equipped ekoparkovku more reminiscent of green lawn.
For the city ekoparkovki no longer a rarity. But where to park the car owners generally, stopping on the territory of the private area? Leave the car directly at the gate or in the vicinity of the house, put the shed or driven into the garage. The preferred solution would be to place vehicles plot owners and their guests on a small platform with convenient access, take up little space and has a beautiful appearance. Do not forget about one more important detail: the car park should be clean from an ecological point of view, that is not damage the soil and surrounding plants.
Outwardly resembles ekoparkovka grassy lawn,is resistant to medium loads, therefore easily withstand the weight of several cars. The guarantee of durability and stability is reliable reinforcing mesh, disguised in the soil, which fills the cell lawn grass or special paving stones.
Consider the advantages of the construction of ecological parking on a private plot:
- playground equipment and the coating itself is made easy, without heavy machinery or engaging construction crews;
- materials have budgetary costs and implemented by specialized construction companies or market;
- equip ecological parking lot cheaper than to arrange a concrete parking garage or building;
- ready platform is up to 15 years without maintenance, is resistant to temperature changes and raskisaniyu soil during the rains;
- lawn is completely safe for children, not only can serve as a comfortable place for children to play or be replaced for the time barbecue area;
- for regular care required regular garden tools.
One of the important qualities - all the materials,involved in construction, safe for the natural environment and does not interfere with plant growth and development. And geotextiles and lawn grids made of a material, which protects the soil and does not pollute it.
Accurate ekoparkovka looks much nicer than a vacant lot or a concrete pad, it can easily be used to implement an interesting design finds
The finished coating ekoparkovki sectional recallslayer cake, in which the bottom layer is a natural soil, and top - lawn grille. lattice cells are filled with fertile soil with grass seeds. Consider the materials that must be purchased for this device "pie".
The order of layers and their thickness and composition, depending on soil type and construction tasks may have different options
Lawn lattice - the main component part,visible on the surface, so it increased demands. When you purchase it is important to consider both the technical properties of the material (plastic), and aesthetically pleasing appearance. The material resembles a honeycomb, is green or black - the color of the grass or soil. It should be durable, moisture and thermally stable, resilient to measure, easy to cut, not susceptible to the action of chemicals.
Lawn grid cells differ in shape: they can be hexagonal (resembling a honeycomb), square, rectangular, round or even oval
Geotextile is useful in equipmentdrainage layer. A strong web of polymeric fibers filters the moisture and serves as a separation barrier between the different layers, most often between the base of crushed stone and sand Coating.
Cost geotextile depends on its qualities andraw materials for manufacturing. For example, 1 m? the cheapest material recycled is about 6 rubles, and needle-punched white textiles without additives - 25 rubles
Crushed stone or gravel, and sand needed forConstruction of the drainage layer, the so-called sand-gravel cushion. It serves to align the base for laying lawn grid and load balancing. During the wet top layer does not accumulate moisture on the surface, thereby preventing the parking of waterlogging and puddles.
Even a light load on the gravel bed is notexcludes a responsible approach to its equipment: lawn coating will last much longer if we use only quality material and layers of crushed stone, gravel and sand well compacted and leveled
For devices decorative top layerIt requires fertile soil and grass seeds. Greens for sowing can be diverse, including resistant to frost or diluted seed undemanding to care colors.
The cost of a 5-pound bag of seeds - from 600 to 1400 rubles. The price depends on the quality of herbs included in the mixture. For example, drought-resistant seeds or shade tolerance are more expensive
Like any responsible action, the construction of parking begins with planning, material calculation, cost calculation and selection of favorable time.
By selecting the most ideal for parking, notforget about the access roads and the necessary maneuvers, as well as the possible number of transport units. Correctly calculating the parking area, you can make an accurate estimate, therefore, to save on the purchase of materials.
After the paperwork and necessary purchases canget to work. To begin, remove the top layer of natural lawn (if the parking lot is taken stretch of pristine land). The result is a shallow pit, the depth of which is equal to the height of the future "layer cake". You need to add the height of the gravel and sand cushion and a height of lawn grid - these are two significant layers. Geotextile is so thin that its parameters do not affect the overall height.
ekoparkovki can be used for planning andmaking partial changes to the landscape design. Together with the construction of parking for vehicles can improve the access road or upgrade the sidewalk leading to the house
At the bottom of the pit fall asleep rubble. If the soil is too wet, the clay, the base can be strengthened with a piece of geotextile to a layer of crushed stone (or gravel) do not "walk" and not pressed into the soil. The height of the lower layer - 20 cm, but much depends on the roughness of the bottom. If you delete any turf pit, it is better to fill with sand. The more uneven, the thicker the gravel base.
Even if the layers of gravel and sand are not verythick, the material need a lot. For cost savings can be rented truck and deliver gravel and sand (gravel) in bulk and not in the bags
A layer of gravel covered with sand tight, not forgettingto stamp it and pour water, providing a strong shrinkage. If gravel is large, you can lay another layer of geotextile to the sand do not fall down. A layer of sand -. 10-15 cm on top of the sand cushion again laid geotextile. The result is a smooth, dense, ready for laying turf grids fabric.
This is a fairly simple job available, evenbeginners. The size of the lattice module allows you to start packing at any convenient location. If the parking area of trees or other planned decor (it happens sometimes), it is better to start with this place.
If the obstruction occurs at the junction of several modules, enough to cut off the unwanted parts of adjacent elements to get the right size hole
On geotextile put the first module, to himsecond mounts and so on. The elements are fixed together by a groove. Excess material at the edges of any cut by the cutting tool. Given that automobiles - dynamic load modules can be mounted in the ground pins is L-shaped, especially in the area perimeter.
One of the operational, but the wrong waylaying lawn grid: the modules are placed directly on unprepared ground. There is a possibility of waterlogging, besides such parking mechanically unstable
Finishing stage - fertile soil distributionin the cell. For a long time not to mess with the sowing of grass, it is mixed with the ground even before backfilling. There are various options for decorating. For example, in a staggered manner to sow daisies or other low unpretentious flowers. This is especially true for sites that are often used for other purposes - for games or as a platform for cooking kebabs.
One of the original and beautiful options for perimeter ekoparkovki or rest areas: the combination of pavers with grass lawn, decorated with fresh flowers
To somehow diversify the green lawn, you canuse paving. For example, the German company «Hubner-Lee» offers a special system ekoparkovok TTE device in which cells can be filled with a soil and paving cubes. Bricks have permeable properties, as well, and they miss the air.
Despite the porous structure of bricks, allowing them to "breathe" and skip moisture, paving is strong enough to withstand the weight of the car
The use of materials one of the manufacturer allows a quick installation paving stone: blocks are simply inserted into the grooves, and fixed with a small internal ribs
One of the simplest options ekoparkovki: cover is an alternation of paving and grass. Parking is obtained a stable, durable and decorative
Lovely place for a holiday or teas happen if a parking space is suddenly unnecessary. Bench, table or flower garden - and a parking lot for the car is transformed into a cozy corner
Construction ekoparkovki ended, but the reserve has become a large number of turf grids? Excellent - they will be useful for devices paving tracks or barbecue
Design lawn grids are so convenient and easy to use that they can be used even for curbs device or distinguish between different zones
Maintenance concerns two elements: base made of plastic and is constantly growing up grass. eventually wear out grates, so they must replace the same elements in size, and this replacement is better to buy modules from the beginning. With a sharp alternation of frost and thaw, the formation of ice on the surface of the plastic. It should be hard to remove the tool, do not have sharp edges.
During the summer, enough to clean up garbage in the parking lot, and occasionally, as grass growth check, shorten it. In the spring the soil may need to be replaced, or some modules
Events on for grass care are similar to those that are regularly carried out with the usual lawn:
- mowing grass, ate its height above the grid level is greater than 5 cm;
- additional irrigation during the dry season;
- fertilization depending on the season and type of soil;
- weeding, aeration, overseeding.
Subject to all rules laying turfgrille and proper care for grass crops beautiful ecological park will delight you and your guests for a long time. The modular structure of the lattice assumes its quick repair, and if necessary - to change the size or design.
