Project Brief for a Property in Roundhay, Leeds
This Driveways Case Study focuses on Mick Durkin, owner and director of MD Paving Ltd. He was approached by a client in Roundhay, Leeds who wanted to refurbish their existing driveway. A perfect job which we have used for this Driveways Case Study.
The owners of this large detached house on West Park Crescent needed a complete overhaul of their driveway area. With space to have 4 to 5 cars parked comfortably when guests came to stay, the old driveway was suffering from mismatched tarmac and paving. In addition, there was no structure to protect planting or an efficient system for drainage.
The team at MD Paving had the task of re-paving this huge driveway, but still, compliment the features of the gardens and boundary wall. The first step was to remove 180 tonnes of the garden, prior to laying a sub-base for the whole area to ensure enough load-bearing capacity. In addition, the team fitted an effective soak away and drainage system to prevent any flooding. To match the tone of the house, the team used beautiful Premia Granite Stone, complemented with Raj Green Indian Stone. Hundreds of setts were late to cover this large area.
MD Paving have long been a fan of Plaspave products, which they feel is the ideal material for a large project and to showcase our driveways Leeds case study. Granite especially has been used as a paving material for hundreds of years due to its hard wearing qualities. The Premia version is a perfect choice as it has great texture and mottled shades. The Indian stone is great for the finishing touches and is attractive paving for both traditional and modern homes.
MD Paving has achieved a superb driveway with a combination of visual impact and structural security. It takes skill to make sure that below ground works can withstand plenty of use and incorporate the proper drainage systems. Not forgetting each stone is hand laid and crafted within the design spec.
