Turning Back Garden Into A Driveway

Another block paving installation completed by Exceptional Landscaping and Driveways in Northampton. Your local block paving specialists for Northampton. This project had some challenges attached to it since they wanted to turn an old tiered garden into an area where they can park at the back.

We completely removed the entire area and had to build in an even slope as the house is elevated significantly to the main road. We put in a completely new foundation which we built up with crushed stone first and then put a Type 1 MOT foundation on top of it. Due to the level restrictions on either side of the property, we had to ramp the slope in certain sections to prevent future problems.

We put down membrane sheeting, river washed sand and laid our block paving on top of that. We used a buff block paving colour with a triple border. The outside border is charcoal.
