In just 12 days, the AWBS Landscaping team turned a crumbling tarmac drive and untidy lawn area into a tidy front garden and driveway that provides our Oxfordshire client with better access and parking options.

The client stated a need for a smart alternative to the crumbling tarmac as well as more parking space with improved drainage for the enlarged driveway.

On site expectation, the existing front garden of this Abingdon property consisted of a run-down tarmac drive and a large lawn that was in need of some TLC. For the best possible result, the project required the entire front garden to be cleared with removal of both the original drive and turf, which was our first step.

After, a new gravel driveway was added using AWBS’ own Gold Flint Shingle for a neutral nuance against the deep blue slate paving (Stonemarket Truslate Blue) that was installed at the front of the house. The gravel was a great choice for this project because its buff to burnished orange tones not only look fantastic but the 20mm flint chips also aid drainage – two birds, one stone!

To complete the transformation, between the gravel and the new lawn, the drive was trimmed with Brett Alpha rough edged block paving in refined Silver Haze to coordinate with the new smart slate paving. For the lawn area, high quality Rolawn turf was added and bordered with a neat new closed board fence down the left side.

The customer was delighted with the result, commenting: “We commissioned AWBS as we used them for a previous project. Again, they provided a first-class service to provide us with the desired outcome we requested”.
