Bound Gravel Drive

This beautiful bound gravel driveway, is actually the result of some serious engineering, the house was built over an old pond and had to have deep pile foundations. To ensure that this driveway stood up to constant use, it was constructed with a geofabric,then limestone subbase, followed by a base macadam, which was then coated with two layers of fibredec ( a combination of chopped fibreglass/gravel and tar). This creates a water bound, long lasting gravel surface that doesn’t shift with wear.
We added a stock brick edge for visual appearance and to prevent the drive from breaking away should a vehicle run off the edge.

The timing for this work had to be between Spring and Summer as the binding agents only work at temperatures above 60f.
