Boya - asphalt residential path & water diversion hump
Below are before and after pictures of a existing hardstand steep path at the side of a house in the Perth hills suburb of Boya.
The surface was scraped clean and an additional 50mm thick layer of roadbase was added, levelled, compacted and waterbound to form a hardstand surface falling away from the house.
The surface was then sealed with a bitumen tack emulsion and 25mm thick layer of 7mm laterite hotmix/asphalt with 1% oxide.
An existing worn water diversion hump in the front driveway was raised with a layer of 7mm laterite hotmix/asphalt with 1% oxide.
The surface will oxidise and lighten in colour to a red gravel terracotta finish.
The more sun on this type of surface/product the faster it will oxidise and lighten in colour.
