For over 6 months I have already been planning and working on the construction of the new garden kitchen and the Small animal house. But without concrete foundation I can not build a house in the garden. Now came kort-term the promise, that theeton foundation finallyh can be built on the two plateaus in the garden.
Why do I needWhy do I need a concrete foundation in the garden?garden?
Due to the slope of my GI have created several levels or plateaus in order tohe garden area to be able to use the garden area optimally. On the south side of the house was already many years ago a 30 square meter plateau was built into the slope.built.
For this I have aringanchor with gabions, so Stone baskets, built. The area within the Rings I had filled with soil and compacted.
On the south–east side, right next to the gabion plateau, there was a slope until a few years ago. slope.
- Gabionenkorb * Breite 1000 mm * Höhe 1000 mm * Tiefe 500 mm
- Frontgittergröße 1000 x 1000 mm * Maschenweite 50 x 100 mm * Drahtstärke 4,5 mm
- Maschenweite der restlichen Gitter 100 x 100 mm * Drahtstärke 4,5 mm
- Verbindungsart * Spiralverbindung
- Ausführung Galfan (95% Zink, 5% Alu)
This slope zoThis slope extended over a length of a good 40 meters to the Eing in the north. Also this hang was with a massive gabion wall captured and replenished. Partly the Gabion wall 2 Meter high and thus forms a nice pedestal above the underlying surface.
Although I compacted the backfilled soil in layers with my vibratory plate, I did notplate, but the is really stable and load-bearing.this subsoilround.
So that my new massive garden kitchen but also the new animal house and the bird aviary do not the subsoil with a massive concrete massive concrete foundation stabilisiert be stabilized.
What is important during Construction of a concrete foundation in thegarden to pay attention to?
You can actually build a solid concrete foundation directly in in an excavated area create. The concrete hardens and the surface is hard and stable. In the long term, this procedure, however, can lead to problems.
If the concrete foundation is in permanent contact with the comes into contact with the ground, the moisture from the soil will migrate into the concrete. In the winter, the water can freeze under the foundation and raise the floor slab or postpone A good frost protection is therefore recommended.
Furthermore, the planned Foundations with their surface of some exposure to the environment. In the summer dhe direct sunlight the foundation Heat strongly. The Concrete would sexpand and in the crack in the worst case.
Moisture would penetrate through the cracks and damage the foundation by further harm the formation of ice in winter. To protect the foundation should ae good reinforcement
be installed. Also special expansion jointen can provide a remedy here.
Concrete fundament for thePrepare kitchen
The garden kitchen is to be located on der area directlyly be built right next to the pool. The surfaces should seamlessly with each other and should match the level of the adjacent walkways. sidewalks.
Since I later still terrace boards odeor flagstones later, the Surface of the newn Concrete foundations a good 5cm under the later finished level lie. The plateau was after a good 10 years relativly firmly sunk, but still too high for my plans.
Therefore, the upper area was excavated by a good 50cm
The excavated material was moved with a shovel and wheelbarrow at another place of the property temporarily stored.
Go to Protection from frost were well gut 15 cubic meters of crushed stone (0–32) installed in layers and with the Rvibratory plate condensed. Total thus arose good 50cm hough frost protection layer.

Form installation of the froprotection I have I already laid the lines and pipes that would later be required in the ballast bed. For this I have 2 KG pipes on the west side and one KG pipe on the east side.n dug. These tubes I will later use as empty pipes.
Furthermore, a 25 water pipe was also laid and 2 Electric Empty Tubes. In this way I can later use the Kitchen with electrics, Networkwater and Sewage supply.

To ensure that the liquid concrete stayed where it was supposed to, the sides had to be be shuttered, of course. On the gabion plateau, however, this was not so easy.
The subsoil consisted of a solid layer of gravel and on the sides was everything open. With Except for the sidewalk on the north side nowhere could fix the formwork boards.
The solution The solution was as ingenious as it was simple: a ring, or better said a ring, was placed on the edge in front of the gabions.gt a U, made of solid concreterten drawn. These braids were set concrete and aligned. Now lacked only the reinforcement.
So that the concrete not dry out too quickly on the one hand, and on the other hand through the frost protection, a film was applied to the surface of thefoil was spread over the spread.
On the foil spacers were then laid out and the first layer of reinforcing mesh installed. The KG Pipes and the water pipes were carefully cut out with the bolt cutter.ted.
Subsequently was a further spacer twisted with the reinforcement mesh before a 2 layer was installed. The
Preparations were thus ready and the concrete pump could get started.
Video zum construction of a concrete foundation in thegarden
The construction of the concrete foundation I have of course captured with the camera and an exciting
Video shot. In my Youtube–channel you can find the compplaylist for the construction of my
Gartenküche and the garden house.
Concrete fundament for the Ggardenhouse prepare
The effort for the new Garden house should not be quite so time-consuming. The area above my gabion wall had settled for 2 years and was beready relatively level.
I have the size of the future concrete footingfoundation and defined this area.ereich to approx. 60 to 80 cm depth completely out of cofferdam.
Then I have the later position for the garden house bestimmt and an electric conduit was inserted in such a way that it would later emerge from the concrete foundation exactly from the concrete foundation.ent.
Starting from the sidewalk I have now formwork with 25cm high formworkttern built in the format 4×4 meters. The formwork boards were all installed in balance.
Herehave normal wooden slats from theaunbau into the ground and the boards on it from the outside (!) screwed together. The corners were mit angle plates also from the outside (!) screwed together.

Now a weed fleece was from the outside to thealboards and the the area from the outside filled with the excavated material.
Parallel to thisinside my formwork of my formwork the ballast (0–32) layer by layer up to the lower edge of the of the formwork boards and compacted.
The soil on the outside of the boards should stabilize the form – finally dthe liquid concrete pushes against the boards with an enormous force when it is poured.
Shuttering boards. Here, too, a foil was now laid out and the spacers placed.
Then followed the first reinforcement mat, the second spacer and finally Finally the second mat.
Pour concrete foundation with the concrete pump
A few days later, the time had come. A mobile concrete pump was already waiting in my driveway on the big concrete mixer that delivered the much-awaited goods. The truck with the mixing drum filled the relatively liquid concrete first into the concrete pump.
From here it went over an approx. 30m long hose into the Garden. The concrete was now poured into the formwork poured and then smoothly buffed. Due to the Amount of concrete, the truck had to make another trip to the concrete to the concrete plant to reload fresh concrete.
But after a good 3h it was done and the both surfaces were filled with concrete and levelled.
So that the sun did not dry out the concrete too dried out too quickly, thus reducing the risk of crackformation existedthe entire surface was covered with a covered with a film and every 30 minutes with the garden hose watered.
The next day we could already walk on the concrete and start the preparations for the construction of the garden kitchen and the gazebo could start.
