This 325m2 driveway project in Market Deeping, Lincolnshire was completed on the 8th June 2018 and took us 6 days to excavate & block pave.
The Customers Needs
The customers were in the process of renovating their property and wanted a contractor to replace the existing driveway & path area with a much better looking all in one block paving product which would be more suiting of the property as well as creating a larger, easier surface to drive & walk on.
Co-Operating With Other Contractors
As there was other contractors doing work on site while we were in the process of working, we decided it would be best block pave roughly half of the driveway and leave the other half sub-based and flattened so the contractors had space to put their vans/skips etc on site without damaging the blockwork and creating a mess. We came back once the contractors were finished to block pave the rest of the driveway.
A Different Block Design/Colour
The customer wanted to use a different block to conventional block paving so we used a Savanna autumn block for the main colour and a charcoal block for the border colour, the Savanna block comes in 3 different sizes and are laid in a random stretcher bond design.
We also installed a block paved step at the front door in the same colour.
Providing Sufficent Drainage
We installed aco channels across the front of the 2 garage areas as water was falling towards that area, we also created falls in the driveway so that surface water would run into a gravel border or the soiled area at the side of the property if necessary.
The Finished Product
The result is a block paving installation which is more suiting of the property and provides an easier surface to drive on.
All the work you see here is guaranteed for 10 years until June 2028.
