This is something that you should look into because if you can pave your driveways on your own, you will be saving money in the long run. This means that you have options out there to utilize, and mostly any house would look complete with a pavement that is perfectly fit for your home. You can find out what types of paving are out there for you to use from the internet before you order them online, or go to the store near you to pick them up.
Three Place a geotextile layer (weed control fabric) on top of the subsoil to the total area of your driveway. This eliminates mixing of the sub soil or clay and the hardcore yet still allows water to flow away freely.Hold this in place using a few bricks or blocks and keep it tight whilst adding the hardcore.
Make sure the line is tight as you don’t want any sag in your line, this will give a false reading with your levels which could result in your finished driveway holding water.If your driveway is falling towards the house, then simply reverse the fall and levels from the pavement towards an existing rain water gully. If this isn’t possible, you will have to install drainage channels along the front of the property. Water should then be directed into a soak-a-way within your garden area.
Traditional gravel or pea shingle driveways: These were once only for the very wealthy. They were introduced as a security measure. The idea being that when a vehicle or person made contact with the shingle, the noise would alert the household to the intruder.
