This week, our neighbour finished off laying out the new surface in our Loke, all filled in with the asphalt recycled material. More compacting was required and the heavier petrol driven compactor was employed to help drive the material further into the cells of the grid modules and now, it is much tighter and more solid.
We had a bit of left-over from the last order, so the excess was spread further down and around our own entrance way, raising it up a little bit but we still got a channel down the middle to help guide any rain water to the bottom and kept away from our two houses.
The section completed was about twenty-five metres long and it costs about £1200 So to complete the rest of the 136metre Loke would be in the range of £6500
We are also exploring the possibility of putting down artificial grass along the middle strip, to give it a slash of bright colour, plus also maybe using pale coloured sand or small stones to compact into the surface too.
