Using ICPI established best practices from Tech Spec 2 and Tech Spec 10, you will ensure the require base, setting bed and drainage of your hardscape project.
Remove all excess bedding material 4″ (10 cm) at the edge of the hardscape project (See photo on the right).
For a Gator Base installation, cut the Gator Base flush with the edge of the hardscape project and remove approximately 4″ (10 cm) wide by 1″ (25 mm) deep in the native soils along the edge (see Gator Base diagram above).
Mix 1/2 US gallon (1.9 liter) of water with one bag 50 lb (22.7 kg) of XTREME EDGE until you obtain a homogeneous mixture.
Create a triangular shaped wedge of XTREME EDGE against the side of the pavement. With the help of a trowel spread approximately 4″ (10 cm) of XTREME EDGE mixture at a 30° angle over the base material (Photo 1) or native soil in a Gator Base application (Photo 2). Ensure that the XTREME EDGE covers any void spaces and at least 1″ (25 mm) of the vertical side of the paver or 1/2 the height of the hardscaping material being used.
Final compaction of the paved surface with the G2 sand should take place while the XTREME EDGE is still curing. As with Gator Nitro Joint Sand the paved surface should be compacted 90 minutes after XTREME EDGE installation.
Measurement unit conversion
1/2 US gallon = 2 quarts = 64 fl.oz = 1.9 liter
