Greenmount - residential driveway and parking area

Updated: Jun 27, 2022

The first three photos below show the front yard of a house prior to any works taking place.

The following five photos show various stages of roadbase work once the area was scraped clean of any contamination and excess fill.


Roadbase was installed, levelled, compacted and waterbound to form a hardstand surface.




The following photos show the asphalt surface completed only minutes earlier.


The area was tacked with a bitumen emulsion and sealed with a 25mm thick layer of 7mm laterite/gravelpave hotmix/asphalt with 1% red oxide.


The surface is very dark when first laid but within weeks will oxidise and lighten to a laterite terracotta coloured finish.


The area was sprinkled with a few shovels of sand to allow for immediate vehicle use and will help reduce the chance of scuffing the new surface. The sand will disperse naturally over the next few days.
