Types Of Driveway Preparation By More Than Driveways:

Regardless of what was there before, you need to ensure a solid base for your driveway. This means removing the existing surface and leaving enough space for at least 4 inches of base for the area.
This base needs to be the equivalent of Type 1 Hardcore which is semi permeable yet once you have compacted should become fairly solid.
During this stage you need to make sure you have set your levels approximately to what you will require for dealing with drainage on your driveway or patio area.

Edge restraints on driveway
This would be the ideal stage to put in your edge restraints if you require any. If you are looking to have a flush finish with whatever is there, you don't. If, however you have lawn beside it, soil or something similar, you should always put in an edging.

The edging can really be anything you would like and normally its just a standard kerb, block paving kerb or a block paving brick which is benched in concrete on its side. Another option is a border which is placed at the same level as the finished driveway surface. This border is set in concrete which means it can retain anything inset.

Sub base of driveway
This is where you would first lay down your membrane sheeting. This helps to prevent weed growth on the area. Once you have membrane sheeting down, you can put little spots of sand to keep it in place.
Spread sand all over the area, we recommend a coarse sand as its permeable, and you set accurate levels on it.

To set the required levels, make sure you have pulled string line levels from points of A to B to ensure an accurate water fall and screeding is done by pulling a screeding bar along 2 metals channels which have been set to the required heights.

Of course, this example applies if you are choosing block paving for your driveway. If you are thinking of a tarmac driveway or a gravel driveway, you would apply this surface instead of the sand.
Gravel is normally raked out over the driveway and set to the required levels. If you are getting a thicker level of gravel applied to your driveway, we recommend opting for plastic stabilisers underneath the gravel. This can make it significantly easier to walk across.

For tarmac or asphalt, the levels as either set on large areas by a barber green which sets the levels automatically or if it's a small driveway, it is set by string lines and raked to the required finished.
Once finished, the tarmac driveway is compacted with a machine roller which has water applied to the drum. This cools off the tarmac the same time as its leveled locking it solid in place.
