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.
