Sydney Today, a new driveway was paved in the garden on March 3th, Eastern Time, Australia. This is one of the high-cost projects. The design of the driveway must take into account both appearance and function. The driveway will take up a lot of space in front of the garden, and if properly designed, it will add a lot of bargaining chips to the value of your property.

There are many factors to consider when designing a lane, including the size of the slope, the convenience of the car, the style, the texture of the road surface, the range of vision and the attractiveness of inheritance.

For your property, it would be wise to first consider the connection between the driveway and the block and plan for it. Designing the lane in a straight line may be the first choice, but when choosing a slope or curve, it seems to be more careful. No matter which one is chosen, the turning radius of the vehicle should be considered.

When choosing the location of the driveway, you should consider the existing trees and try to avoid them when choosing the location. You also have to consider the impact of tree roots on the lane in the future. If you choose a fixed pavement material, such as concrete or stones, you need to dig to a depth of 16 cm, which may affect the roots of the tree. Using gravel or small pebbles to pave the road is a good choice for controlling the driveway to excavate the root area. The use of porous materials allows rainwater to seep into the ground, which is also beneficial to trees.

The choice of materials depends on your budget, but adding some details to the layout of the lane will make the lane more interesting. Common materials include bricks, stones, and large areas of cement. These sound like paving, but for a large driveway, it looks very boring. The exposed pavement—a concrete pavement that shows mixed pebble and stones after being washed out—can make you look like a gravel driveway, which is much better.

A solid driveway with concrete as a roadbed may expand or contract, depending on the moisture content. If there is no expanded connection, the road surface is easy to crack. Ideally, there should be a joint every three meters. In addition, joints should be added in the most vulnerable places, such as when the driveway meets the corner of the wall or other masonry surfaces.

There must be some plans for service needs, including choosing suitable places to install water pipes, making roads easier to dredge, and installing lighting facilities. However, our goal is to build an attractive garden after all, not a suburban parking lot. (Ivy)
