Oltco were contacted by Mr Nyman who enquired whether we could assist in helping him with drainage problems on his drive he also asked if we could increase the turning circle within his current driveway. Our technical director Tom visited Mr Nyman and discussed various options to help with the drainage he also recommended reconfiguring an existing wall to allow us to increase the area for turning.
Oltco completely prepped the surface, which involved creating a hump at the entrance to re direct the rain water, installing a channel drain, digging out the existing soil, installing hardcore which was then compacted. A final layer of concrete was then installed before the surface was finished off with our Cornish Granite resin bound gravel surface, which was laid at 20mm. We also in filled 2 manhole covers with the resin bound gravel to give the driveway a seamless finish.
Mr Nyman was extremely happy with the finished project. He loved his new driveway and larger turning circle and was really pleased that we had managed to help overcome the drainage issues that he was having.
