Exposed aggregate…elegance and class

An exposed-aggregate surface is obtained when concrete is placed and the upper surface is removed to expose a coarse inner layer. This can add beauty and elegance to a property, and sometimes exposed-aggregate is also compared to marble and granite as this decorative method does not fall short of any of other trendy surfaces.

Adding aggregate to concrete

Aggregate can be added to a concrete surface in different ways. The most common method is to sprinkle the aggregate onto the concrete as soon as it has been placed. Then the particles are embedded into the mixture till they are covered by a thin layer of cement paste. Another method is to mix the aggregate with the concrete before placing it. However, people do not prefer this method, especially when expensive aggregate is being used, as a large amount of the pebbles are required in this case.

Solid and safe floors

The coarse layer of concrete is highly durable and skid resistant also. Thus, it is safe for making exposed aggregate driveways, sidewalks, pool decks and patios. Moreover, heavy traffic and extremely bad weather are unlikely to harm the concrete floor. As a result, you can choose this method to enhance the beauty of your driveways or other outdoor spaces and at the same time you can ensure that there are no chances of slipping accidents.

The best choice

Exposed aggregate finishes are available in various textures and colour. Thus, you can choose the most appropriate style for your property. This type of floor can also be advantageous as it requires very less maintenance time. If you want to enhance the aesthetics of your property and at the same time spend less time cleaning, exposed aggregate is the best choice for you.

Don’t let plants inconvenience you

Today, we are living in an age where global warming is everyone’s concern. We are all invited to plant trees and to preserve nature so that we can maintain a balance in the ecosystem. However, that does not mean that you have to let trees grow anywhere and everywhere, and live with the numerous inconveniences they may be causing you.

Keep healthy trees around you

There are many ways to grow plants to protect the earth without making a mess in your yard. For example, you can have a garden with healthy and well shaped plants which will add to the beauty of your property and also cause no disruptions to your daily activities. Moreover, if you have trees in your yards which are located in convenient places and do not cause you any problem, you can let them be. All you have to do is check for damages and get them pruned regularly.

Grubbing…a permanent solution

On the other hand, if you have trees which are a lot of trouble as they are causing harm to your property or they are in the way of some construction works you are planning to carry out, you may not be left with any other choice than to get them uprooted. If the tree is huge, it may not be easy task to get it out of the ground and just cutting it down may not be a permanent solution. In this case, you need to go for grubbing. This process entails the removal of roots and stumps completely from the ground. Grubbing is advantageous as it will prevent regrowth and it will also level out the ground so that you can carry out your construction works easily.
