Bromstone Road - red gravel drive and water main replacement

Location: Bromstone Road

Our customer loves red! So, the challenge was to find a red stone suitable to be used on a driveway. They needed to be large enough so not to stick in tyre treads and be taken out onto the main road and small enough to be comfortable to walk on. The stones also needed to be angular as opposed to rounded to prevent rutting which is a common problem on drives laid with the wrong materials.

As well as replacing the water main, we changed the manhole covers to recessed covers which enable the stone to be laid in which pretty much makes them disappear! There are two in the photo, as you can’t see!
