Square Driveway

The overriding concept was to combine the driveway and front garden as one to maximize the potential parking opportunity, whilst retaining their separate identities. Tumbled block paving was laid in a coursed pattern to the majority of the driveway, with a sett banding inlay with an area of natural stone paving at the threshold of the entrance to the house. A single course of setts continues to wrap its way around the graveled front garden allowing the occasional parking. A suitable palette of low maintenance groundcover and hedging plants was used to soften geometric nature of the design. Finally the driveway framed by a series of low boundary walls with bespoke railings were introduced along with a full height wall, which integrated seamlessly by means of a quarter circle brick detail.
