Smart new Brett Alpha Trio block paved courtyard driveway

After the purchase of their new home in Oxfordshire, this client approached AWBS Landscaping with a desire to replace their existing gravel driveway surfacing with new random cobble paving.  With restricted access to the property, the ten-day project wasn’t without challenges. But our landscaping experts took it all in their stride!

A site with many challenges

As the Cropredy property is situated next to the village church at the bottom of a narrow dead-end road and the entrance to the house is very tight, access to the project site was a test. However, as part of our project management, we approached the parish council and church authority prior to the start of works to discuss site access. We also arranged convenient storage for the duration of the project.

Though the restricted access upped the degree of manual labour needed to excavate and apply sub base preparation before the new paving could be laid, this was nothing that the skilled and experienced AWBS Landscaping team couldn’t handle. 

From gravel mess to smart cobbled courtyard  

Ten days’ work resulted in a beautiful courtyard driveway constructed from Brett Alpha Trio block paving, which comes in a pack of three mixed block sizes, in the versatile yet sophisticated Silver Haze colour.

At 60mm thick for a hardwearing and weather-resistant driveway that will last for years to come, the rustic rough-edged square block paving  was laid in a random linear pattern bordered with a single width block running course border to produce a classic random cobble paving finish. Our project photos reveal just how effectively this new driveway lifts this Oxford property.
