Recently we were contacted by a customer who was looking to convert their front garden into parking space for their car. Once the existing fence and hedge at the front was removed we marked out the driveway area and excavated soil down to hard moraine. We then built the area back up with type 1 stone compacted with a roller and compaction plate until we reached the level required. The next job was to install edging boards and a surface drain channel which was set in place and haunched with concrete. The existing street kerbs were removed and replaced with drop kerbs to allow a smooth transition from road to driveway. Lastly we laid down a base course of tar followed by a surface wearing course to bring us up to the final finished level on the driveway and pavement. Our customer is now delighted to have off street parking.
