We recently posted about sub-base preparation work, and here we have another example. This time we were preparing a surface for self-draining block pavers at a new car park at Bulford, Wellington Somerset.

The photos below show the different stages of the preparation.

Sub-Base Preparation (Type 3 Stone) for South Cerney Stone at Crosskeys, Taunton

A good sub-base is extremely important before applying the surface layer. The photos below show us preparing a sub-base, using type 3 stone, at Crosskeys, Taunton.
