Driveway Project In Yaxley, Peterborough

Project Information

This 300m2 driveway installation was completed on the 19th October 2018, and took us approximately 6 days to excavate and block pave.

The Customers Needs

The customer wanted to replace the tarmac driveway and the grass area at the side of the house with a much better looking all in one block paving product which would nullify any front garden maintenance and give them much more room and space to turn cars around in a narrow cul-de-sac area.

Installing New Path Edgings At The Front

As part of the project the customer also wanted to take out the old path edgings and install new dropped path edgings, before they could only drive onto the driveway through the far end but now they can drive on or off the at any point of the driveway.

Block Design & Colour

We block paved this project in a 90 degree herringbone design, using brindle as the main colour and a charcoal treble border.
We also installed 4 recessed manholes into the driveway and merged them in nicely with the block paving so they wouldn’t be an eyesore anymore.

Ramping To The Doorway

As part of the project the customer also wanted to make entering and exiting the house easier, to do this we got rid of the step at the front of the door and ramped the area smoothly to the front door slightly on 3 sides, this also meant that the customer did not have to compromise for any space on the driveway.

Finished Product

The result is a beautiful all in one block paved driveway installation which has given the customer very little maintenance and provides them with plenty of space to drive and park multiple cars, while also being a useful turning point for them in a narrow cul-de-sac.
All the work you see here is guaranteed for 10 years until September 2028.
