Another choice for surfacing is concrete. concrete drives are extremely robust and hardwearing, easy to clean and virtually maintenance free. Ideal for garage floors or garden footpaths thru to numerous industrial uses such as forecourts or loading bays and speed ramps. Buying or building a new shed? then 90% of the time you will require a concrete shed base to place it on. We can excavate and lay shed bases to your exact requirements.
we also use concrete in new drive construction as a base layer for our resin bound aggregate surfaces which is becoming very popular, although tarmac may also be used as a base for this product.
Concrete products, generally pre-cast, are available also for most projects in the garden as well as more commercial\industrial projects. Fence posts in concrete can be used for every type of fencing and provide a much sturdier support than timber ,as well as not rotting away as timber is inclined to do, saving the cost and trouble of replacing them every few years!

Also on the market are various concrete bollards , ideal for restricting traffic and parking or creating a pedestrian safe zone by separating people from any moving vehicles, or simply for a demarcation to an entrance or property boundary.
We also use concrete pavers or slabs in construction of our d.d.a ramps ( direct disabled access ramp) as a large vertical style edging. Our ramps are built to make any entrance point to a property or raised area of garden easily accessible to everyone, often accompanied with a sturdy handrail. These ramps can be surfaced with any material from concrete , concrete block paviors , resin bond or tarmacadam.
Nearly everything we do in driveway, path or patio construction will involve the use of concrete in one form or another , even buying a pre-cast concrete product is only the start as generally this product will require to be laid on concrete as well as being supported by concrete.
