Gorgeous New Driveway in Ashlar Stone Pattern
Planet Surfacing recently completed the installation of a beautiful new pattern imprinted concrete driveway in Sale, Manchester. The new driveway was across part of the front of the house as well as down the side of it to provide a path to access the back of the house.
The new driveway also had to incorporate the existing lawn at the front of the house. One of the great features of pattern imprinted concrete is that it can be laid into any shape and size of area that you have and can be fitted around existing features that you want to keep such as trees, shrubs, herbaceous borders and lawns.
For their new pattern imprinted concrete driveway in Sale, Manchester our clients opted to have Ashlar cut stone for the pattern and coloured in dove grey. Because of the wide range of colours and patterns, you can choose something that is bespoke to you and matches the age and style of your house.
To define the shape of the new driveway and highlight the borders, we acid stained the edges. The effects of this are shown in some of the photographs included. We also added a recessed manhole which was covered with the pattern imprinted concrete, blending it in nicely with the rest of the driveway and ensuring it was discreet.
We also included an ACO drain along the top of the driveway where it met the footpath. The drain is needed because the concrete is not porous and so without it, the surface water has no where to flow to. Incorporating the drain into the new pattern imprinted concrete driveway in Sale, Manchester makes it SUDS compliant.
To complete the driveway, we coated the surface with an acrylic sealant with anti-slip agent. This is like a protective coating that ensures the driveway is able to endure wear from driving over it and walking on it.
