Tired Gravel Drive Refreshed

Client Requirements:

Lower and renovate existing gravel driveway

Products Used:

  • Five bulk bags of 20mm Local Quarry shingle
  • 90no reclaimed bricks

Time Frame:

4 days

This Oxford landscaping renovation called for a new gravel driveway. Updated and clean – this Cumnor property is a soothing sight for sore eyes.

Approached to reduce the ground levels to the front and side of the property by a depth of 150mm below the damp proof course following damp course treatment works to the building, the AWBS landscaping team saw an opportunity to shine because gravel driveways are a speciality.

The client also saw an opportunity to take full advantage of the levelling work and have the entire existing shingle driveway renovated. Over four days, we installed five bulk bags of 20mm Cotswold buff colour local quarry shingle and then put 90 reclaimed red bricks in place to provide a neat contrasting edging between the new gravel driveway and the front lawn.

For improved access to the property, we also created a step up from the gravel to the front door using existing reclaimed paving. You could say we recycled and refreshed the outside space and created a new gravel driveway for the neighbours to admire.
