New Granite Gravel Driveway in Rathfarnham

Take a look at some during and after pictures of this granite cobble and granite gravel driveway in Rathfarnham, Co. Dublin. All materials and labour were supplied by our professionals at Select Paving.

As always we started by clearing out the existing driveway, which was laid with concrete. We also removed part of the lawn and greenery to significantly widen the usable area.

Our team laid a foundation of an 804 sub-base, as well as a hardcore membrane to stop any unwanted weed growth in its tracks. We created a pathway, edging border and a doorstep using varieties of Granite Cobbles and anchored them down with concrete. The multiple rows of cobbles at the entryway, along with a functioning drainage system, catch an eye of anyone walking by.

The rest of the area was then filled with Granite Gravel and compressed down.

Tarmac Driveway with Grey Cobblestone Border in Dublin

Here is quick recap of a tarmac driveway, completed by Select Paving in Dublin.

First, we dug out the existing surface and removed it from the site. Then we laid down a foundation for the future driveway - a Type 1 MOT sub-base. We created a raised block kerbed flower bed in one of the corners as well as a new doorstep to match.

To break the blackness of the tarmac, we used a contrasting Grey Cobblestone border around and tripled it at the entrance to create a nice entryway feature. The border, along with the two new ACO drains on each side, were set in concrete to anchor them down.

Then we completed the project by pouring down a layer of tarmac and power-rolling it down for a perfectly smooth finish.

Asphalt Driveway in Drogheda

We have recently laid a new Asphalt Driveway on a lovely property in Drogheda.

As usually, we started by prepping the area. That included digging and removing the original surface, leveling of any imperfections and laying a new solid base.

To define a clear border for the future driveway, we needed to lay new rounded kerbstones all around.

We finished the driveway with a layer of SMA Asphalt. This is one of the most popular materials used for residential driveways for its low maintenance and high durability. It gives any entryway a contemporary and modern look.

Our professional team is on hand to discuss your own dream asphalt project in Drogheda. You can call us directly or visit https://www.selectpaving.ie/services/tarmac/tarmac-driveways-dublin/ should you require more information.

Redesigned Patio in Glasnevin

We are especially proud of the following patio transformation, completed by experts from Select Paving in Glasnevin.

Firstly, we removed all old hedging and lawn to make space for the planned layout. Secondly, to increase the privacy of the owners, we built a new block wall. New pillars were installed at intervals to provide better stability for the wall.

We've laid a curved patio, using Grange Granite flagstones and Silver Granite border line with new foundations, membrane sheeting and sub-base underneath.

We filled the rest of the garden area with a Grade 1 Topsoil for the new lawn.

Block Paving Installation in Dun Laoghaire

New block paving installation in Dun Laoghaire completed by Select Paving. We transformed the front of a garden area turning it from a lawn area into an elevated paved area using block paving from Kilsaran. We elevated it using a medium cobble block and put a dropped down area to blend in with the existing driveway.

The drop down was built using 3 sizes from the tumbled range at Kilsaran and a granite cobble border. Aco drains were installed along the border to ensure no water pooling would occur.
