The Process/How To
The path to your new, durable pathway is simple.
Follow these steps to install your pathway stabilizer:
- Read MSDS and Safety Data Sheets before starting a project and make sure you wear protective clothing such as rubber gloves, safety glasses, and rubber shoes.
- We suggest you use plastic drop cloths, tarps, and tape to protect adjoining surfaces or while filling your application can. Use cloth rags or paper towels and Xylene to clean spills on surfaces.
- Frame the pathway, patio, driveway, or any area with our custom edging material made in the USA from 100-percent post-consumer recycled plastics. This material can be left in place or removed depending on the look you are trying to achieve. This may stick to other edging materials including wood or metal products.
- Place clean, dry stone on the pathway at least 1/8” or larger. You can use larger stone as your base and decorative stones as your top layer to reduce project cost and the amount of material required. Ask our pathway solution experts for details.
- Once you’ve made sure the stone is dry, compact and smooth out the surface using a roller compactor or a handheld tamper. If you would like a textured surface, use a broom.
- After the aggregate is properly prepared, apply the polyurethane sealant with an approved application system: Howell Pathway custom applicator or ordinary watering can. For really large projects, customers can use our recommended pump and compressor system. Total cure time, or drying time, could be as long as 24 hours, depending on the outside temperature.
Klingstone Paths works great for any gravel or stone surface like pathways, driveways, or parking lots.
