driveway to 17th hundreds country house in the cotswolds our remit to use a suitable material. we chose a reclaimed granite sett cubes with varying sizes to form a bogen pattern.we used a band of 3 setts to all outsides. view to house
this gives us levels and falls for water we also place our gully pots to catch all the debris they are fitted with sludge buckets we then started from the far side working to the gate we set up our templates which i designed my self.they are better than the old way of laying. the setts are laid on a 4/1 sharp sand cement mix tapped in to level with lump hammer as you can see we have a gazebo x2 which gives us 32m2 of protection from rain and sun they are tested to 70mph winds there from poptents northern ireland.
