How old is your driveway surfacing? What condition is it in? Having a driveway outside your property provides numerous benefits. Guaranteed off-street parking whenever you return home is chief among these. This is especially true if you live in an area with parking restrictions, or where finding a spot is always a struggle. As a prominent feature at the front of your house, your driveway also has a huge impact on its kerb appeal. If your drive is tired, cracked or worse, it creates a bad impression for visitors and passers-by.
Operating out of Bordon, GN Groundworks lays new driveways in all surrounding Hampshire and Surrey areas. Our key service locations include Alton, Basingstoke, Farnham, Haslemere, Hindhead, Liphook, Liss and Petersfield.
Our comprehensive service covers every aspect of your driveway installation, as well as a wide range of stylistic tastes, including:
• Block Paving
Whether you want to renew a surface that has reached the end of its lifespan, extend your current drive for more parking space or design a new one from scratch, our company can turn your ideas into a stunning reality.
You can rest assured, we put just as much time and effort into the groundworks as we do the visible surface itself. The same applies to our patios and paving too. Any new driveway is only as strong as the below-ground system supporting it.
Before excavating, we take into account your site’s soil type, your preferred surfacing material and the anticipated loads the completed drive will handle.
The longer your driveway lasts, the further your investment in it stretches. With less maintenance and repairs too, it will also have a low lifecycle cost.
Consisting of individual interlocking blocks, block paving drives are non-porous, so they immediately comply with SUDS legislation. You don’t need planning permission or any extra drainage features.
We supply blocks in various sizes, shapes and colours, so you can create a personal design that complements your home’s existing scheme. If a block or two becomes damaged, the repair work only involves removal of those blocks. This avoids disrupting the whole surface.
When laying resin-bound driveways, GN Groundworks mixes clean, dry aggregates with a clear resin in a forced action mixer. This process ensures that every piece of aggregate has a resin coat. Our team then trowels the resulting mixture onto the prepared substrate with a smooth, flat finish.
The mixing and laying process creates small gaps between the aggregate, making these new driveways permeable. They’re SUDS-compliant too. The structure itself creates a durable, practical and attractive surface.
Laying gravel is one of the most cost-effective solutions, especially if you have a long driveway. It’s a highly versatile option that is equally at home in a rustic, traditional setting as it is a sleek, contemporary one. Further appeal comes in how quickly our team can lay these driveways. A faster turnaround time means less disruption.
To prevent weed growth, and to minimise future maintenance, GN Groundworks lays a membrane beneath the gravel to suppress weed growth. Again, gravel drives are permeable and SUDS-compliant.
Concrete is a long-standing favourite with homeowners in Basingstoke, Farnham and Petersfield. It offers great performance in all weather conditions, and if you’re pressed for time, it has low ongoing maintenance needs.
The signature grey tome is ideal if you want a neutral finish, but with colour injection options, you can also customise your surface.
Quick and easy to install, highly durable and cost-effective, installing a tarmac drive can save you money and time. These new driveways also set quickly, so you don’t have to wait a long time before you start using it.
Skid-resistant, durable, recyclable and the ability to handle heavy loads – tarmac drives have a long and impressive list of benefits.
