To give a very drab driveway some kerb appeal using vibrantly coloured indian stone.
We would need to excavate the whole of the existing tarmac driveway (approx 45 tonne) and contest with many different contours and angles across the drive when laying the indian stone.
After the excavation, we installed approx 32 tonne of MOT road stone and laid 97 square meters of indian stone on a bed of 9 tonne concrete, sand and cement wet mix. Wooden sleepers were used as a retainer to the lawned areas, then we needed to square off the drive into two as there was 8 different angles to contest with. We over came this by laying a double row of indian stone blocks/cobbles separating the two drives. The clients were suitably impressed, and invited us back to continue the stone to both sides of the house and a patio area to the rear. For this project we used the “Rippon” indian stone.
