Yate Driveway Installation

This is a driveway installation which was a replacement and extension that we have just completed in Yate, Co. Gloucestershire. Existing driveway which was a tarmac covered concrete driveway we removed. We installed a new sub base, widened the edge on the lawn and gave it some shape.

Membrane sheeting was installed to inhibit any weed growth on the new paving installation. We installed a new paving step at the front door of the house, a new gravel flower bed at the top of the driveway and covered an existing flower bed with gravel. Covering the flower beds with gravel providing you have installed membrane sheeting makes a flower bed low maintenance as weeds will not be growing in it.

Aco drains were installed at the front of the driveway and piped into a soak away to deal with surface water in accordance with SUDS regulations.

Block paving installed in a 45 degree pattern. The driveway had a solid 9 inch charcoal header border. An inside border was done with a 4 inch stretcher bond. The paving was compacted in place with a kiln dried sand brush finish for jointing.

Had old sloping concrete driveway removed and new block paved area and drop kerb extended to accommodate two cars. Work took 4 days to complete. Positive comments from neighbours on appearance and quality of work carried out by hard working Rhys and Keiren supervised by Sean. We are very pleased with the end result.
