Wheelchair Pathway for Private Estate

111 views

Published on

Confined to a wheelchair and needing access through the garden and to essential points throughout the Estate Soil Solutions was contacted to provide a solution for wheelchair access. A pathway around and throughout the Estate was constructed and sealed using EBS Soil Stabilizer.

The pathway was constructed using soil on the Estate. The soil was sieved to remove all oversize material then mixed with EBS and water in a cement mixer to create a slurry. The slurry was placed and then spread to an even thickness. The surface was then made smooth using trowels and allowed to cure before the application of an EBS Surface Seal, which seals and protects the pathway from erosion, cracking and the effects from heavy rains.

The end result is a pathway, which is usable year round in any weather conditions that provides wheelchair access throughout and around the Estate allowing the owner to enjoy the garden, the ponds, swimming pool and to reach any of the essential areas to keep the Estate fully functional.

Wheelchair Pathway for Private Estate

  1. 1. www.soilsolutions.com info@soilsolutions.com Project Name: Wheelchair pathway construction ____________________________________ Location: Johannesburg, South Africa ____________________________________ Client: Private Estate ____________________________________ Application: EBS Surface Seal ____________________________________ Area: Private Estate in Johannesburg, South Africa This project entailed the construction of 300m2 of gravel pathways in order to create a more usable access throughout the Estate that would blend in with the surrounding landscape creating a harmonious, aesthetic and visually appealing atmosphere. Background: Our client confined to a wheelchair and needing access through the garden and to essential points throughout the Estate contacted Soil Solutions to design a solution that would enable him to comfortably maneuver through out his estate. As a result a specially designed pathway around and throughout the Estate was constructed and sealed using EBS Soil Stabilizer. The design was practical and allowed for the construction of a natural looking pathway that blends in with the surrounding environment without the use of any heavy equipment and will require minimal maintenance while providing full access around the Estate.
  2. 2. www.soilsolutions.com info@soilsolutions.com Project Description: The wheelchair pathway was constructed using soil from the Estate. The soil was sieved to remove all oversize material then mixed with EBS and water in a cement mixer to create a slurry. The slurry was placed and then spread to an even thickness. The surface was then made smooth using trowels and allowed to cure before the application of an EBS Surface Seal, which seals and protects the pathway from erosion, cracking and the effects from heavy rains. Result: The end result is a pathway, which is usable year round in any weather conditions. The EBS Surface Seal will ensure proper water run-off as well as make the surface water and UV resistant. It has a reduction against freeze thaw heaving, is safe for vegetation, wildlife and animals and will not require minimal maintenance. Furthermore, this natural looking environmentally friendly flexible surface blends in perfectly with the natural surroundings of the Estate. The new pathway surface enables wheelchair access throughout and around the Estate allowing the owner to enjoy the garden, the ponds, and swimming pool and to reach any of the essential areas to keep the Estate fully functional.
