Standard BNQ 0605-500
Landscaping - Inert Materials

Although landscaping projects using inert materials may vary in size, the work must always be performed in accordance with recognized technical rules for the results to be solid, safe and functional.

The BNQ 0605-500 standard addresses this need by dealing with topics such as lighting, walls, stones and pools. It sets out construction requirements, rules and techniques. To cover all the aspects of this kind of landscaping, the standard is divided into eight parts:

  • definitions;
  • concrete construction;
  • lighting;
  • drainage;
  • irrigation;
  • parking, paths and patios;
  • steps, walls and the use of stone in landscaping;
  • ponds, streams and fountains.
