High quality tarmac driveways, driveway resurfacing, block paving and slab laying for residential and commercial driveways covering Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, Cheshire, Shropshire and Derbyshire. Call us on 07976 240173

Whether you choose to use Tarmac, pattern imprinted concrete, block paving or a resinous bonded stone, Ian Hooley Landscaping provides you with the opportunity to transform your existing driveway or patio areas, into an entrance fit for your home.

Each of our driveways is designed to the individual customers specifications and are a great help in complementing the appearance and character of your home.

With a large choice of materials and designs at our disposal, we will provide you with a driveway that will continue to last and at a price that you will find hard to believe.

Our recent projects have included small residential drives, agricultural access roads, commercial access roads, farm tracks, forecourts and car parks.

We are able to provide a wide variety of tarmacs and finishes including the standard black and blue and the popular red and green coloured tarmacs.

Professionally installed tarmac drives are attractive and hard wearing.

There are three layers involved in tarmac driveways, starting with preparation and the foundations.

  1. In most cases we will excavate the area required for your driveway down to a depth of around 16 to 18 centimetres. Then a base of crushed hardcore (rock, chipped stone and broken bricks etc) will be laid down and compacted to give a solid foundation.
  2. We will then edge the outline of your drive with either edging kerbstones or a decorative stone. These are then laid out on both sides which will are supported whilst the tarmac laying takes place.
  3. We lay the tarmac in two layers;
    • The first or "bottom" layer is known as the "base" and is usually made of a coarser aggregate. As this is laid out our specialist team spread the base ensuring full coverage and a uniform thickness all over.
    • The second or "top" layer is called the "wearing course". Once the base layer has been raked to ensure full coverage we then roll the base layer with a roller until the tarmac surface shines and the roller leaves no further indentations or marks. We then lay the top course which contains a much smaller grade of aggregate once again ensuring full coverage. The top layer is again compressed until a high shine finish is achieved, not only making the tarmac driveway stronger but also ensuring it has longevity.
