Tar & Gravel Finish to Driveway

  • Hot Tar and Gravel Surfacing
  • Driveway in, is firstly laid with tarmacadam
  • The tarmacadam can be laid by machine or hand laid or both, as required
  • Hot tar is then applied and gravel applied
  • The appearance is of a gravel drive but it has that hidden solid base
  • The finish is a neat and tidy natural look
  • Driveways can be transformed with this type of makeover

This project was for one of our oldest customers who had built a new home near Towcester, Northants.

Having built a new house we were asked to supply a natural looking driveway and parking area.

We laid a tarmacadam base on a previously prepared hardcore sub-base.

Hot tar was then sprayed to the tarmacadam surface and gravel applied to give a natural looking finish.

By laying the tarmacadm first the surface has a good solid base for driving on rather than just having gravel that tends to move and rut or even dissapear into the sub-base after vehicular use.
