Driveway – Gerrards Cross

Having undergone a full renovation, the driveway at this gated property was the final area to be completed.  Greenstone Landscapes were appointed to supply and apply the Resin Bound Gravel to this generous private driveway.

 

The existing driveway area consisted of a macadam substrate bordered with raised silver granite setts, which were to remain in place.  On inspection it was found that the macadam had been applied at a greater depth than required.  To reduce the costs to the client, Greenstone Landscapes regulated the required areas with excess Resin Bound Gravel prior to applying the final application.

 

It took four days with a combination of 26 operatives to complete the works.  Working with such a large number of operatives on site assisted with minimalizing the amount of ‘day-joins’ required.

 

The client’s blend choice of Riverbed was the perfect complement to the property and existing flowerbeds.  The addition of the Resin Bound Gravel to complete the driveway really has made this property a statement of sophistication.
