Olde Quarry Granite
|Material||Concrete Wall Stone|
With an antiqued patina similar to Brussels Dimensional Stone, but in a larger scale format, Olde Quarry reflects the cues of quarried stone, and brings timeless warmth to any project. With plastic connectors that create interlocking between rows, the 3-stone random bundle can be used to build straight or curved walls, planters, steps, pillars, fire features, grill islands and more.
The unusual weathered appearance of Olde Quarry makes it an alternative to natural stone products. Whether your plans call for constructing a curved wall, seat wall, planters, steps, edging or even an outdoor kitchen, the look will be commanding and impressive with the antiqued finish of Olde Quarry.
Applications – Design and build projects such as planters, steps, grill islands, pillars, seat walls and water features. Olde Quarry allows for the construction of both straight and curved applications.
Capacity – walls up to 2 ft. (60 cm) in height and hardscape features up to 4 ft. (1.2m)
Recommended Base Stabilization – one layer of DriveGrid™ stabilization grid between subgrade and base material. Use under Standard Base or Permeable Base.
Standard Base – Min. 6” – 8” of ¾” Crusher Run gravel (any road base standard in accordance with ASTM-D2940) compacted to 98% Standard Proctor Density (SPD).
Alternative Permeable Base – Min. 6” – 8” of ¾“ clear open-graded stone compacted to achieve full particle lock-up and consolidation. (Clear open-graded does not compact but does consolidate slightly by rattling the particles together.)
Leveling – Leveling retaining wall blocks directly on top of gravel is tedious and generally does not yield the best results. U-Grip Base units or universal base pads are recommended under all Unilock walls for improved accuracy and speedier installation. Additional benefits include long term structural integrity and an overall better appearance. Poured concrete leveling pads, reinforced with rebar, are also a great way to accomplish leveling, particularly for larger installations. You must ensure that the concrete is poured and finished perfectly in order to achieve a good visual appearance.
Connection – Mechanical (use plastic insert provided) or adhesive. Make sure surface is clear of dust before gluing. Always read adhesive manufacturers’ directions.
Handling – No specific handling instructions.
Coping - This wall does not require coping, but coping is generally used to complete the installation visually. Choose a manufactured coping such as Unilock Universal Coping or any of our natural stone coping options. Install with tight joints or 3/16” gap between units and amend with an exterior latex caulking. Cutting may be required; a diamond blade saw is required to cut coping properly. Glue all coping using a specially formulated concrete adhesive that is strong and will not break down over time. Always read adhesive manufacturers’ directions prior to gluing.
