Imagine you have a big, beautiful house that is your pride and joy. Now imagine to get to the house you have to drive up a crumbling, old tarmac driveway.
That was the issue our customers faced when they approached Diamond Driveways to replace their driveway and give their loved family home much needed kerb appeal.
A Fresh New Driveway Look
As you can see from the picture above, the tarmac driveway had seen better days. It was cracked and crumbling and in dire need of replacement.
But what material should they go for to complement their wonderful home?
With the help of our team, our customers decided on block paving as its character perfectly suited their house.
But which block paving to choose?

Getting to the root of the problem
When we create a new driveway we want it to last for a very long time. However, as tree roots grow, they can spread under the drive and cause damage.
“With this job we built in a tree root barrier.” Said our design director, Stephen Lewis. “We basically had to dig down and surround the tree roots with concrete. It does not stop the tree growing, as it allows the plant to grow upwards, however it does stop roots spreading out and causing massive damage.”
