Project Information

This 682m2 project in Peakirk, Peterborough involved us gravelling an entrance, roadway and large driveway area while also installing 200 linear metres of new kerb edgings each side of the roadway. This driveways Peterborough project was completed on 6th January 2020 and took us approximately 8 days to complete.

Customers Needs

The customers wanted to replace the gravel entrance, cracked tarmac roadway and old tarmac/stone driveway with an much newer and tidier gravel area which would be easier on the eye as well as being easily maintainable, they also wanted to replace the old kerb edgings with new kerb edgings to separate the gravel area from the grass area

Excavating & Gravelling Entrance

The first part of the project involved us excavating the gravel entranceway in front of the gate to a suitable depth, filling the area with a good crushed hardcore sub-base which was then flattened using a 1 ton roller and then gravel was spread onto the area.

Excavating & Gravelling Roadway

The second part of the project involved us excavating the gravel roadway beyond the front gate to a suitable depth, filling the area with a good crushed hardcore sub-base which was then flattened using a 1 ton roller and then gravel being spread onto the area, all while following the shape of the roadway all the way round.

Gravel Driveway Project

Installing Kerb Edgings On Roadway & Driveway

While excavating the project we took out the old kerb edgings either side the roadway and then installed 200 linear metres of new kerb edgings in its place to give a separation from the gravel to the grass area, this also meant that gravel would not end up on the grass area.

Excavating & Gravelling Driveway Area

The third part of the project involved us excavating the old tarmac & stone driveway area in front of the gate to a suitable depth, filling the area with a good crushed hardcore sub-base which was then flattened using a 1 ton roller and then gravel being spread onto the area for an all in one improved parking area.

Installing Large Slabbed Step

As part of the project we also installed a slabbed area at the front of the door to create a large step area to give the customers good access to the front door from the gravel driveway

The Finished Product

The finished product is a much tidier gravel entranceway and a much improved area to park in front of the house, while also getting new kerb edgings installed to create separation from the gravel and grass.
All this while being backed up by our 10-year guarantee which will last until January 2030.
