Ground and Site Preparation

  • A skip will be hired and left on site to take away all excavated materials
  • Existing grass and root base will be removed to an approximate depth of 80mm
  • Ground to be levelled and compacted
  • All of this will be done in a neat and tidy fashion


We will place a composite frame along the edges of the paving area. This will help us to ensure that we have a stable edge to pin the grass down upon completion of the project. This ensures there are no trip hazards.


The sub-base is made up of approximately 60mm of crushed granite. This is then compacted down. The granite is a necessity in this process; it is a key part of good drainage and also provides a stable base.
