Why use Ferricrete?
Ferricrete is a versatile, easy to use hard-wearing product. It naturally forms an iron-rich hardened layer in the soil resulting in superior compaction qualities. The soil particles are bound together by iron oxides and form an erosion-resistant layer. It requires little effort to create a solid foundation which is why it can be used for a range of domestic and commercial uses such as
Compacting and contouring driveways
Top Tip- If have an area of high conservation value or live near a protected reserve we do not recommend using Ferricrete in your garden or as a gravel mulch because of its high iron oxide composition. Ferricrete is occasionally referred to as laterite which just means it is a soil rich in iron oxides and aluminium.
