For those with gravel driveways heavy rain can be a bit of a bummer as well as much-needed liquid gold. Washed out or badly damaged driveways can lead to accidents and cause thousands of dollars in damage to your vehicles. There is a break in the weather forecast for the Sunshine Coast over the weekend, so it is a good opportunity to get onto it, and fix your washed out driveway for good. The key to safeguarding your driveway from the elements is in the base that is laid before fresh gravel is poured. This safeguards you from having to repair the same stretch of driveway after every major downpour.
To make sure the problem is permanently fixed, make sure a base of 75mm is laid first. Then you can go ahead and lay a 25mm road base over the top.
After you have carefully prepared this base (with the correct amount of product), you can smooth out the surface, and then you are ready to apply fresh gravel. If you are unsure about how much product you will need to fix your driveway properly, we are happy to point you in the right direction.
We can also help you out by bringing out our new bobcat, to make sure the job won’t have to be done again after the next heavy rain. Call us on 5453 7100 and we can get you sorted with the right product to get that washed out driveway fixed for good.
Being a Trade Centre, most of our product is available in bulk. But we also know that there are many people who like to be able to ‘grab a bag’ of their favourite product to get smaller gardening jobs done.
Although we are heading into winter right now, our mild climate means that it is actually a very good time to install turf. In fact, there are some real advantages to laying turf as we head into our cooler months.
With Winter officially just a couple of weeks away, lots of our customers are thinking about fire pits. Such an Australian way to get together and enjoy spending time with family and friends (or just your own thoughts). Our good friends at iLandscape have got a range of fabulous Yagoona fire pits in stock, and we can help you out with the gravel, deco gravel, blocks, pavers or pebble to complete the landscaping around your fire pit.
