Given its prominent place at the front of your home, your driveway has a huge impact on how visitors and passers-by view your property. However, a successful driveway not only needs to look good, it must also have the strength and resilience to withstand vehicle loads day in, day out.
From the outset, our builders work with you to ensure we create a fit-for-purpose driveway. We consider all aspects, including the soil type, your chosen material, drainage requirements and the number of vehicles you plan to park on it.
When it comes to driveways, our landscaping company uses:
BOC Contractors Ltd cannot overstate the importance of drainage when choosing your driveway material. Every new driveway our builders lay, be it in Cobham, Epsom, Kingston or any other Surrey location, must comply with SuDS guidelines.
SuDS legislation for driveways focuses on a responsible, sustainable approach to water management that reduces the risk of flooding. In turn, this enhances the quality of the local water supply.
In short, if your new driveway consists of a permeable material that lets water drain through to the ground beneath, you don’t need to worry about planning permission. However, if you choose an impermeable material, you will need to include provisions for rainwater run-off or face the prospect of applying for planning approval. Solutions include drainage channels which direct water to a soakaway or lawned area.
