Manchester Road – Bolton
About this installation…
This customer contacted us in order to completely renew the outside of their property. They were unable to properly fit their cars on the driveway due to uneven levels, and the existing gravel and stone that was laid was causing damage to their vehicles. The drive was also unsafe to walk on, especially for young children. The back garden area of the house was also a bit of a mess. Again the levels were all over the place meaning that it was unsafe for to go out on. There was also an old concrete base in the middle of the garden, and a couple of tree stumps surrounding, so our customer decided they wanted the perfect driveway and garden ready for the summer.
The installation started by excavating the whole area to create the right levels throughout. MOT Type 1 was delivered to site and put down as a sub-base. From there the perimeter of the driveway and garden was dug out and 3 metre black Nylofor fencing was erected. This was used so that the views and sights were not lost but the security factor is still in place. Walls and steps were then built using incised treated timber sleepers. The sleepers created a step down from the patio to the garden and also created a boundary with the artificial grass and planters.
Following this the concrete was poured to the patio area, side drive and front driveway. The area of 250 square metres was differentiated by using London Cobble pattern in Dove Grey colour to the driveway, and Grand Ashlar pattern in Classic Grey colour to the patio, both finished with a charcoal release. Once all concrete had been installed the wooden gate was fitted, which had to be hand-cut due to the non-standard width. Next the artificial grass was fitted to the top area of the patio, giving the children a lovely garden to play in without getting muddy. The installation was then finished off with flowers being planted in the planters.
The customer is absolutely delighted with the installation and has already started to make use of the driveway and garden. You could also have your driveway or patio ready in time for summer, just contact our office to request your free survey.
