Driveways can be both aesthetically pleasing and practical depending upon the size of the given area, surroundings, its use and house style.
MDB Landscapes design and install simple, practical driveways and others with more detailed design to help integration into the garden and local surroundings.
Block paving, tarmac, decorative aggregates, resin bound gravels, shingle, natural stone including granite and sandstone setts, permeable block paving, clay pavers and concrete driveways are a few examples. We also install concrete hard standings for equine use.
For these and other block paving types please use the relevant links or contact us with your driveway enquiry.
A small driveway in E. Sussex. The remit here supplied by the client was for a block paved driveway to replace their existing old concrete hard standing and pathway.
The original width and levels of the driveway made for difficult access. The new driveway layout reduced the fall down into the driveway and with increased width, easier access.
Block paving used was Marshall’s Driveline 50 Burnt Ochre.
