Job Description: Excavate existing driveway, lay MOT type 1 hardcore,
concrete in new edgings, lay tarmac base coat and SMA surface course.
This job was attention to detail and had to be done in a strict time frame
due to the customers requirements. Existing driveway excavated required depth,
waste removed off site, 150mm MOT type 1 limestone laid and compacted
with roller, 60mm base coat tarmac and 40mm surface course of SMA tarmac.
Customer supplied natural stone sets from Johnsons Wellfield Quarry
which we installed 4 x rows of at front leaving a 10mm gap in between the joints,
also a 4m stone lintel was installed at the back of the property.
The tarmac had to be laid on a hot day as the job needed a seamless finish,
SMA ( stone mastic asphalt ) needs to stay hot to achieve this on this type of layout.
Finally black epoxy grout was used to point up the gaps in the stone sets.

Job Description: Excavate and remove existing driveway,
lay MOT type 3 sub base, lay open grade tarmac, lay natural stone edgings
to create path. UV stable resin finish in 2 x colours.
This job was a period cottage located in a semi rural area so we had to maintain
the character of the property working on a design with a path running through
The edging stones for the path were sourced from a local quarry, they were then
installed from the garden gate curving round to the garage to distinguish a path. Blocks were used instead of beading to maintain a natural look.
2 x heritage blends of resin were then used, a lighter colour for the path and
a darker colour for the main driveway to blend in with the Yorkshire stone
and natural surroundings.
