Day 10

Permeable block paving contractor

Laying of the permeable driveway paving blocks

Brushing in the permeable infill

The 3mm clean stone infill id brushed into the joints of the permeable driveway block paving units and a wacker passed over the top to vibrate the stone tight and iron out any minor high spots.

Recessed paving tray

One of two recessed paving trays is installed to the correct heights and levels, the tray is squared off to suit the laying pattern.

The tramp gets moved

This is a first, I've never experienced any onsite squatter parking a caravan on my unfinished works, I'm afraid this eye sore will be in most of my images from here on. I will ask the client that I return once the project has finished and they have moved in.

The entire permeable block paving surface is washed to remove the pink dust from the 3mm infill grit.

"@ Alan denton 
I have 2x AP 300 batteries (bought on Stihl's recent "2 for 1" starter deal). Stihl batteries look expensive, but they have good energy-density, so probably the same as other batteries in terms of capital-cost vs. run-time.
I also bou…"

"I've used one since the start of last season. For me the pro's are that it is quick, light and very easy to manoeuvre but still leaves a nice stripe and that is well built. The con is that it has proven to be poor in the wet. So for me on a dry day…"
