I had my driveway/parking area replaced about 5 years ago - old drive
removed, membrane put down and scalpings laid and compressed. I didn't
have washed stone laid at the time because I wanted to sort out a mowing
The driveway is now full of weeds and investigations by a builder who
looked at replacing it again shows there is only a couple of inches of
scalpings laid, looks like I was conned :-(
I am considering one of these honeycomb driveways with a soil in-fill and
grass seed. At least I can mow it then and the weeds will get chopped off.
Does anybody have experience of this type of driveway? It gets light use,
my car and occasional visitors. It would need to take a skip lorry and
skip though, I have lived here 8 years and had 12 skips so far and that's
unlikely to change in the future.
I will need to get it done, it's about 200 square metres and so will need
the use of a digger rather than a pick and shovel.
