For this project in Lancashire, we were asked to remove an old concrete driveway that was broken and uneven. There was also an area of grass that was to be removed, making it possible to park more than one car on the driveway once it was finished. We was also asked to lay the block paving to the side of the house, creating a wide pathway that would lead up to the side enterance.
We used our own diggers to dig up the concrete. We went down to about 12 inches. We then removed all the hardcore which was loaded onto our truck. Once the type 1 MOT was delievered, this was laid across the whole area, creating the foundations for the driveway.
We then laid a membrane sheeting which would prevent any moss and weeds from growing through. Sharp sand screed was then added to the ground and then using a spirit level, we levelled it off leaving a perfect flat surface.
Our customers chose to have a charcoal coloured border around the driveway and then multi coloured brindle blocks in the middle. We laid these in a 45 degree pattern. We always take drainage into consideration.
Once the driveway was completed, we swept up any debree that was left. Our customers were really happy with the way we worked and how their new driveway turned out.
