We were invited to tender for this driveway project in Tunbridge Wells.
The existing driveway gradient was far too steep for vehicles to access the driveway without grounding out.
The clients were very aware that the materials to be used, needed to be sympathetic to the Victorian property and of a high quality.
How We Solved Them
Clay pavers were chosen for their character and hard wearing properties.
Wealden sandstone was used to build the walls, as it was in keeping with the existing garden walling.
Retaining walls were built to contain the sub-base layers. Layers of crushed concrete was used to build up the driveway level and reduce the gradient.
A new soak-away and drainage system was installed to cope with the surface run-off from the new driveway.
The new driveway compliments the property and has increased the kerb appeal.
