A guide price for a project this size (not including planting or designer fee) would be around £80,000 - £90,000inc VAT.
Our client had an overgrown front drive area with gravel that was spilling out onto the road. There was a need to completely start again so new boundary fences were needed on the front and right side. The driveway area needed to be a lot bigger so that it could fit multiple cars on it and the client wanted borders to add some interest with planting but also to add some trees.
The area was extremely overgrown. This was our first challenge. To clear all the overgrown ivy, grass and weeds. We had to dig out the area ready to bring in lots of aggregate to get the base of the resin drive completed. The time lapse shows the initial clearance but unfortunately our client's camera didn't save the second stage!
The Completed Driveway
After the area was cleared and the base dug out we set about getting all the edging blocks and paths in. After the sub base of type 3 was compacted, the tarmac was laid and after this the resin. Top soil was added to the beds ready for the client to plant up, although we did plant a few trees, some hedging and a small square of turf near the house.
The resin finish that was chosen was Sureset's Norweigan Pearl. The edging bricks and pathway are riverstone grey paving blocks.
