Knutsen Landscaping, Inc. of Conestoga, PA Use Unilock Drivegrid for Adding Strength to Pool Deck
This free-flowing pool project is being undertaken by Unilock Authorized Contractor, Knutsen Landscaping, Inc. of Conestoga, PA. The pool, complete with circular splash pool/spa, has been given a Unilock Brussels Fullnose coping to complement its organic, freeform design. For additional strength, and to reduce the depth required for the pool deck’s aggregate base, the Unilock DriveGrid System has been used beneath the base. As seen above, the aggregate is being placed on top of the Drivegrid before being evenly spread and compacted. The final pool deck will feature Unilock Beacon Hill Flagstone in the Tuscany color option, along with a Copthorne border.
Although the Unilock DriveGrid System is typically used to reinforce driveways and to limit the lateral movement of subsurface aggregate caused by heavy vehicular loads, it has proven itself as a dependable geogrid for use in the construction of patios, pool decks, and courtyards. Patented Tensar TriAx Technology provides the grid with triangular reinforcement, giving it 360 degree radial stiffness. As a result, less aggregate material can be used in the laying of a hardscape. This equates to greater savings in both materials and labor. The relatively light weight of the high-grade plastic that composes the Unilock DriveGrid means that it is easy to carry, transport, and roll out, with each roll weighing a mere 57lbs.
Brussels Fullnose is an ideal coping option for both the design and purpose of this pool. The pool edge follows a winding course that circles back on itself to form the splash pool/spa. This organic style is ideally complemented by a coping that echoes its natural twists and curves. The Brussels Fullnose edge does this, while providing a safe and comfortable option for this family home. A rounded edge is easier on the skin, hands, and feet, and provides a comfortable grip for younger swimmers who prefer to stay near the side the side of the pool.
