Once the driveway has been excavated, shuttering, or formwork should be firmly fixed in place to outline the area of the new driveway.
Timber boards held into place with pegs are normally used for the straight edges of your new driveway but where curves are introduced, flexible uPVC boards work best. At this stage soakaways, gullies and drainage systems should be installed.
At least 100 mm of Type 1 MOT should be compacted down to form a firm sub-base for the stamped concrete. This should be flat but with falls following the contours of the land to enable surface rainwater to run off the stamped concrete surface and into drainage channels.
