Drive in Radlett, Herts, WD7

Ground Art installed a stunning new block paved driveway for this imposing house in Radlett. The new drive finished a large refurbishment project on the property and replaced a decaying tarmac driveway. The site had an unusual shape and potentially awkward gradient. Ground Art re-graded the site and the new driveway slopes gently into a large courtyard area. This driveway won the 2010 best regional driveway at the Marshalls Register Awards, a highly prestigious achievement.

The slope of the site gave the potential for water to run down the drive, a problem with the old driveway which was solved with an ugly speed bump at the top of the drive. Ground Art’s solution included constructing an invisible bump at the top of the driveway which prevents the water running down the drive and is so invisible that you wouldn’t even know that its there.

Our clients were delighted with the driveway we created saying that it “makes the house”. Finishing a large renovation programme the driveway makes “the first impression of the house one of awe.” In fact, they said that “people haven’t stopped commenting on it!”
