For this job our client wanted to replace the existing driveway and grassed area at the front of the house, with a single span of tarmac.
We first removed all the old tarmacadam and the lawn area was dug out to a depth of 2′ (60cms) and replaced with a layer of 4″ rock topped with 804.
The driveway was then graded and levelled with an eco drain installed across the full width of the drive and the front of the house.
The drive way was then compacted to ensure a sound base. We then applied 3″(75mm) of tarmacadam and compacted the whole area again giving a smooth profiled driveway.
The client was really pleased with the finish especially as the new drain would reduce surface water and ensure there were no puddles.
Quote from client:
My driveway had sank over the years and every time it rained we were left with puddles etc. I also wanted to take out the garden and extend the driveway. I got William and the guys from CGM to dig out the garden, take up the old driveway and redo the whole thing. The result was amazing, the driveway is fabulous, fully shored with no more surface water. The lads did a brilliant job, very professional and I would recommend them for any job, big or small.
