A residential homeowner in Brisbane’s inner west sought a cost-effective, easy to install and aesthetically pleasing driveway surface to cover their existing, unsealed, sloping driveway.

Measuring 12m L x 4m W, the customer wanted a solution that could be installed quickly and used immediately once completed. The customer required a product that provided a long term and durable solution and could be trusted to stabilise the driveway without deterioration over time. Critical to success, was also addressing the driveway’s 20° uphill gradient.

After much research, the customer selected the GEOHEX™ Erosion Control System for the project, because the unique design would guarantee not only stability, but support a driveway with a gradient of up to 20° in either direction. GEOHEX™ can be used across sloping terrain, and gradients of up to 10° do not require pinning. For gradients between 10° – 20° we recommend pinning the pavers in each of the four corners to the substrate using a landscape screw or tent peg measuring 150mm – 200mm. This simple process of securing the GEOHEX™ paver to the substrate ensures that it remains in place – a fact we guarantee provided the installation is performed correctly as per our instructions.

This homeowner worked closely with our team of expert installers to ensure the GEOHEX™ system was installed correctly on a sloping driveway, and was happy to report that the product has been a proven success in providing stability and support. In addition to this, the customer was pleased with how quickly the project took place, especially seeing as the installation could be conducted in any weather.

For this customer, the GEOHEX™ Erosion Control System provided an aesthetically pleasing, stable and sealed solution for their sloping driveway, that was easy to install and immediately ready for use.
