How to Install Ecoraster®

A simple DIY Installation
  • Dig up ground

    Create a level sub base for placing the aggregate. The sub-base should be compacted and level with a slope of 1 - 1.5%
  • Add Geotextile Layer

    Place a geotextile layer between the sub base and the base to prevent aggregate migration into soil. If the base is hard, a geotextile layer may not be necessary, but is recommended.
  • Fill with Aggregate

    Create a drainage layer by filling the sub base with a base of your choosing (1/2'' - 1'' clear cut aggregate is recommended) Any size aggregate will work
  • Install Ecoraster®

    Starting in the corner, place the Ecoraster® grids together and step on the connectors to lock in place. If cutting is required, place the Ecoraster® down, before making cuts
  • Fill Ecoraster®

    Fill the Ecoraster® cells with your choice of decorative rock, decomposed granite, or any other aggregate that will fit into the cells. (The smaller the aggregate size, the neater the finished look will be
