Pervious Concrete at Lyngso

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

Don’t tell anyone, but Lyngso Garden Materials in Redwood City, CA can make pervious concrete!  We just helped them to make a yard of pervious concrete out of their little batch plant and it worked great.  We put it in the back of one of their special concrete dump trucks, drove around for awhile and emptied it out over a half hour later and it was still nice and wet and fresh.

After placing Lyngso’s pervious concrete, naturally we placed our PerkTop™ on top.

PerkGrout Installation

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

We just saved our 4th client in less than a year from the mess between their flagstones!  These are all ‘retrofits’ from previous jobs and the clients were fed up with the messy fines.  We’ve also installed at least 4 jobs using our grout for our own new flagstone set in sand installations over the last year as well.

This job was particularly easy since almost enough of the fines had already washed out from between the stones and we pretty much just had to sweep out a bit, blow and we were ready to install PerkGrout. The contractor who originally installed this flagstone in sand patio did a very good job, note the nice large stones and the tight, consistent joints. Because of this we were able to get very good coverage with our grout, about 1/3 lb/square foot.
