Gravel-Lok Clean Up TIP

Here's a little clean up tip for you...

There is a product on the market called Zip-Strip which is a paint and finish remover. We have found that it works well  to get cured Gravel-Lok off of concrete, flagstone, etc. when used with a wire brush. You can purchase online at Amazon.com or at Ace Hardware and other fine retailers.

Gravel-Lok stormwater management "glass stream"

Recycled glass in different colors combined with the Gravel-Lok aggregate bonding system to create the look of a water stream. 

"We worked really hard on this project. It was a tricky one because it had to pass muster with conservation people as well as the homeowner. All the plants are wetland natives and the hardscape had to include an outdoor shower, fire area and seating/dining. The hardscape is also seen from a roof deck and is this is an ocean property. The "water" looking storm water feature needed to function as well as look like it belonged in this ocean and wetland abutting home. The "glass stream" functions and looks wave-like,especially because the hardscape drops 7 inches and terminates at the outdoor shower." - Ida Wye Designs
