Compact materials can take various forms and what’s right for you depends on what function the material needs to perform. Most compacting materials are the excess from manufacturing crushed rocks. Crusher dust is a popular option, useful for pathways and driveway, which is smoother but not as strong as the road base material.
Where to use compacting materials
Compacting materials can be used in a range of applications, often used as a base under industrial features of your garden, like pathways, driveways or patios. This bedding material is compacted to form a solid base to support the feature which will sit on top.
Can cement be added to compacting materials
It is not uncommon when using compacting materials, to add a supply of cement into the mix before it is applied. Once this is moistened, the addition of cement can make the foundation firmer and more stable. This process is called stabilising.
