Golden driveway in the Huon Valley

natural looking sealed driveway DirtGlue

Our client asked for a natural looking sealed driveway that fitted in with their bush setting. They were delighted with the results.

Our client’s home was situated on a hillside in the beautiful Huon Valley. They wanted to beautify their property with a natural gravel driveway. They were excited when they discovered GreenTrack could deliver a sealed gravel surface with DirtGlue®, using locally quarried gravel.

Like many of our clients, they loved the natural gravel look, but didn’t want the maintenance that comes with a regular gravel finish. They also didn’t relish the prospect of loose  gravel finding its way onto the carpet in the house. With DirtGlue®, we had all the answers they wanted to hear.

The result was a beautiful textured golden surface, decorated with 10-14mm Tasman Gold gravel.

Not only did they get the finish they desired, they were also able to get a sealed driveway that wasn’t affordable with other driveway construction options.

Breathing new life into an old shed

concrete-like slab, constructed with DirtGlue Industrial and FCR

After 40 years with a dirt floor, this old shed on the lower slopes of Mount Wellington has had new life breathed into it. The dirt has been replaced with a concrete-like slab, constructed with DirtGlue Industrial and FCR. The practicality of a rock hard floor has transformed the shed from a dusty storage space into a workshop.

Constructing this slab with DirtGlue presented excellent value to the customer and a great outcome. The eco-friendliness of the product was also important to the customer.

Porch and drive renovation

porch and driveway renovation

Our client was looking to give their porch and driveway a bit of a facelift. The existing stone pavers outside the front door had become a little tired and uneven. They wanted something with a softer more natural look. They liked the idea of a sealed gravel finish connecting the porch and drive. They decided on Dirtglue with finely crushed limestone. Furthermore, it wasn’t necessary to remove the stone pavers, the gravel was laid right over the top!

Stabilising walking tracks in the Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden

Stabilising walking tracks in the Wildflower Garden

Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden is one of Sydney’s best kept secrets. Situated in St Ives, the 123 hectares of urban bushland is a great spot for bush walking and outdoor adventure.

There is a network of tracks through this extremely environmentally sensitive area. The local council has major issues with track erosion, especially when it rains. The soil is very sandy and walking tracks regularly wash out during heavy downpours. This leads to the paths being closed to visitors for safety reasons. The council needed to stop the erosion and DirtGlue was the best solution.

Tracks were treated with a surface application of DirtGlue Industrial. Quite simply, spraying a mixture of DirtGlue and water onto the dirt. Well known problem areas were treated as a priority, stabilising paths, steps and rock structures. The contrast between treated and untreated areas is significant.

Furthermore, because of a preference to avoid cement/concrete in this environmentally sensitive area, parks staff have installed signage posts into the ground using Dirtglue instead of concrete.

Bush track bench anchored into DirtGlue slab – no concrete!

On a quiet walking track on Hobart’s Eastern Shore, Greentrack collaborated with Clarence Council on the installation of a memorial seat. Usually, this style of seat is bolted into a concrete slab, however for this installation the goal was to avoid using concrete.

This seat was bolted into a slab of limestone gravel and DirtGlue Industrial. Limestone gravel was chosen to blend with the gravel in the walking track alongside.

The project was a great success. The bench sits very naturally in the bush setting and no concrete was used.
