Gravel Driveway & Entranceway Project In Peterborough, Cambridgeshire

Project Information

This 174m2 project in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire was completed on the 15th September 2021 and involved us excavating & gravelling a driveway & entranceway and block paving a 4m2 pathway at a front door, taking us approximately 3 days to complete.

Custiomers’ Needs

The customers wanted to completely revamp and free up the area around the property by removing some of the shrubbery and also replacing the grass & soil area with an easily maintainable gravel surface which would suit the rustic style of the property. They also wanted to give themselves improved access to the front door by replacing the gravel footpath with a flat block paving product

Excavating & Gravelling The Driveway

We firstly excavated the grass & soil area around the property to a suitable depth, applied a layer of membrane and sub-based the area with our own crushed hardcore to give a long lasting, sturdy base which was then flattened by a 1 ton roller, and then spread 20mm gravel evenly throughout the area.
