About the project

This Driveway project in Macclesfield created a wonderful new drive for to large family vehicles. After being impressed by our landscaping work on another property in the road the clients asked for ideas and designs for their new driveway on a quiet cul-de-sac in Macclesfield. Our clients often forget that we are able to offer not only landscpaing services but we are also skilled driveway contractors. On arrival to the site in Macclesfield, the existing driveway consisted of an area of level hard standing with parking for only one car. The plan was to construct a new double width driveway, whilst keeping enough front garden space in oder to add colour and charm to the front of the property. The driveway was excavated down to depth, with a gentle gradient towards the road and drop kerb. The front driveway retaining wall was constructed using Indian Sandstone walling stone, the warm natural colours of the sandstone provide a welcome addition to the front driveway, and the gentle cruved wall provides practical planting space without impedeing parking space on the drive. Approximately 15tonnes of type one mot sub base was laid over a geotextile terram fibre membrane. It is imperative on every driveway that the sub-base be at least 15 inches in depth, and that a good terram membrane is used in order to provide longevity. Unscrupulous contractors will use sharp sand, rubble, or in some cases will not even use a sub-base. It is critical that the sub material be appropriate for the job, and we only use a compacting material such as MOT type one. The jet black tarmaccadam driveway provides a longterm and durable driveway surface. It is easy to clean and provides a generous new driveway area for the clients 2 vehciles. This driveway project in Macclesfield, Cheshire was completed over the course of 7days at a build cost of £9600.
