Cabro Paving Process: The cabro paving process involves the following steps:
4. Base preparation: The area to be paved needs to be level and compact. To achieve this our team
trims and backfills (cut & paste where necessary then provides a roller to compact the ground.
If the depth required to achieve levels for stormwater is absent, we provide and level a base
layer of crushed stone, murram or any other stable material. For areas with cotton soil, we advise excavation of the same up to 300mm minimum for residential compounds.

Once excavated, we backfill the excavated void with rock, crushed stone or murram mix, water it then compact the base. In conclusion, ground preparation is the most important stage of the
cabro installation process based on our experience. It guarantees the longevity of the cabro surface just as the foundation does to a house. It is also important to note that some areas may not require this stage of the process if the homeowner already had this done during construction of the house.

5. Edge restraints: Our next step is to ensure that there is an edge to lock the cabro in place on all sides. Think of it as framing the cabro blocks to prevent them from coming off fi pushed by vehicular weight and the steering motion of wheels. to achieve this, we put to use either kerbstones (roadkerbs) or road channels.

Both serve the same purpose but the curbs are longer in height meaning that they can be used in areas where soil needs to be retained such as a flower bed or garden surrounding the parking, driveway or walkway. Note that permeter walls, verandahs, retaining walls also do count as edg restraint provided that the paving blocks terminate where they are.

6. Quarry dust /Sand bedding: Once ground preperation and edges are all in place, the surface is now ready to receive cabro blocks. The first step here is a layer of sand is spread over the base.
