A before pic (top corner) and a Driveway design Visualisation of how it would look with new walling, roughcasting and of course new block paving in Edinburgh, eh1
As we begin watch Peter & Jack excavate around 40-50 tonnes of soil and rubble, needless to say Peter was less than impressed with the MICRO digger. this type of excavation is vital to ensure adequate sub-base is installed. never let anyone tell you it is not required.
Still not even close to full excavation, we aint even moved the plant pot yet! The Micro digger is doing just fine though
The Finished article.unfortunately the rain and leaves got there before Daren did however it still looks great with the Tegula Slate paving, Charcoal kerbstones on step and white roughcasting with coping stones on wall. oh and can you spot the manhole?
This is an interesting picture of what is still a gorgeous looking driveway and walling project, however look for the tyres marks on the paving, these are easily washed off and generally as the driveway wears they become not a noticeable however its a good reminder that despite what anyone says driveways DO still need maintenance to stay looking tip top.
What more can we say, look at that for craftsmanship and the perfect formation of a triple wraparound step. This is why we are the most sought after Driveway & Landscaping Company in The East of Scotland, even the Buddha thinks so!
Now onto the back…okay well we done the back first of course but thought we would you you the front first in the gallery, here is the back garden after us removing old “council slabs” and “red chucks” as we call them, Back gardens require much less excavation as no vehicular traffic should be driven on to paving slabs…EVER
That said you still need a solid concrete base, compacted and level in order to lay your new patio
