Concept to completion: 2 months
Our client asked for a sandstone sett paved driveway and front garden to complement their rear garden.
After finishing a complete re-landscape of the back garden the client requested a complementary design for the driveway and front garden. As you can see, the CAD drawing we produced clearly shows how the natural sandstone setts would complement the natural sandstone paving used in the rear garden, while still providing a different look.
To comply with SUDS regulations (Sustainable Urban Drainage System), a large soakaway was installed beneath the drive foundation which connected to slotted drains at the drive entrance.
The front garden contains two sections of lawn, each edged with antique style setts and separated by a gravel path. Taxus hedging was planted to separate the driveway from the front garden.
Portugese Laurel was chosen as a hedge to surround the front garden boundary. Sawn sandstone walling stone was used to construct dwarf walls to both sides of the entrance pillars, which were topped with Artstone copings.
Electric steel gates completed the project and gave privacy and stature to the property.
