High Performance Bedding (HPB)

Let us delve into the world of HPB, what is High Performance Bedding (HPB), its benefits, installation procedure and, its role in the modern landscaping industry.

What is High Performance Bedding (HPB)?

HPB is a aggregate that consists of small clear stones, devoid of any fines. It is an excellent alternative to traditional sand or limestone screenings under interlock pavers. Not only does it not necessitate additional compaction, but it also aids in good drainage. HPB provides a solid yet flexible base for projects like interlocking driveways, walkways, pathways, and patios.

Key Features of High Performance Bedding

HPB has several distinct characteristics that set it apart from other types of bedding materials. Here are some of the most important ones:

  • No Compaction Needed: Unlike traditional materials, HPB does not require compaction. This can significantly reduce the time and effort required for installation.
  • Excellent Drainage: HPB allows for good drainage, reducing the risk of water accumulation and associated problems.
  • Flexibility: Despite being solid and sturdy, HPB also offers a certain level of flexibility. This makes it capable of withstanding the changes in temperature and moisture levels without losing its integrity.

Benefits of High Performance Bedding

HPB offers a variety of benefits that make it a preferred choice for various landscaping projects:

Enhanced Durability

It is resistant to erosion and settling, meaning your landscaping project will maintain its structure and aesthetics for years to come.

Easy Installation

The fact that HPB does not require compaction makes the installation process much more straightforward and less time-consuming.

Improved Drainage

HPB's excellent drainage capabilities prevent water accumulation, thereby reducing the risk of water damage to your landscaping project.


While the initial cost of HPB may be a bit higher than traditional materials, the long-term savings in terms of reduced maintenance and repair costs make it a cost-effective choice.

Where do you use High Performance Bedding?

HPB can be used in a wide range of applications. Some of the most common ones include:

  • Interlocking Driveways: HPB provides a sturdy and durable base that can withstand the weight of vehicles.
  • Walkways & Patios: These areas can benefit from the easy installation and excellent drainage properties of HPB.
  • Retaining Walls: HPB can be used as a base for retaining walls, providing stability and preventing water accumulation.
  • Garden Beds: The excellent drainage properties of HPB make it ideal for use in garden beds.

Installing High Performance Bedding

The installation of HPB involves a step-by-step process:

  1. Site Preparation: The first step is to prepare the site. This involves removing any existing materials and leveling the ground.
  2. Installing Geotextile: A Geotextile layer is then installed to separate the old base materials from the new gravel base. This prevents the gravel from sinking or mixing with the soil.
  3. Adding Gravel: The gravel is then installed on top of the Geotextile layer.
  4. Compaction: Although HPB does not require compaction, it is advisable to compact the gravel base for additional stability.
  5. Adding Bedding Material: High Performance Bedding is then added and leveled.
  6. Installing Stones: Finally, the stones are installed and the gaps filled with a binding agent such as polymeric sand.

Care and Maintenance of HPB

While HPB is a low-maintenance material, some care is necessary to maintain its appearance and performance. This includes regular sweeping to remove debris and occasional power washing to keep the surface clean.

High Performance Bedding in the Landscaping Industry

In the landscaping industry, HPB has gained recognition as a superior material for hardscaping projects. Its unique properties make it an excellent choice for a variety of applications, from driveways to garden beds. Many landscaping professionals now recommend HPB as the preferred choice for clients seeking durability, ease of installation, and long-term savings.

Wrapping It Up
