The Beginning

Our customer had a graveled area at the front of their property in Park Farm that they wanted to improve the look of and reduce the maintenance.

The area was built on different levels to neighbours so there was a steep drop in height from the gravel area down to a shed which they wanted to improve aesthetically and prevent water pooling.

Work we carried out

A resin bound driveway was chosen as with a Bitumen base the entire install is SUDS compliant and fully permeable meaning no sitting water as it simply soaks through the Resin into the sub-base.

The area was excavated and a geotextile membrane installed to prevent migration of fine soil particles.

MOT Type-1 Hardcore was then installed and compacted with new charcoal edgings added where required to split install from neighbours gravel boards.

An open course of bitumen was added and compacted before Resin was troweled at around 20mm for vehicular traffic.

The choice of Daltex Silver has complimented the house with a nice modern finish.
