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.
We’ve had some much needed rain, and it is a very good time to get in to those garden beds, pull out the weeds, and top up the beds with a nice thick blanket of mulch. There are lots of different mulches to choose from and we have put together a quick run down of our top 5 tree mulches to give you an idea of some of what types of applications they suit best.
At the moment, we have 20kg bags of the very popular Kashmiri pebbles in stock and they represent a fantastic way to get your smaller landscaping projects done quickly and with style.
We are halfway to November already and it's newsletter time again. We have specials on top dress soil to give your lawn some love, and hardwood mulch. We also have tips to grow veggies in pots, a yummy garlic butter recipe and we introduce our Trade Partner, Matt Lucas from Lucas Mob. Enjoy!
