Landscape Design in Cuffley, St Albans, Harpenden & the Surrounding Areas | Driveways & Patios

As independent landscape design specialists based in Harpenden, Rococo Landscaping & Building Ltd designs and lays superior driveways and patios throughout Hertfordshire. From Cuffley to St Albans, our landscapers work closely with you to produce features that blend aesthetic appeal and hardwearing durability. When laid by an experienced landscape construction company such as ours, driveways and patios deliver an immediate increase in kerb appeal while adding a significant amount to the resale value of your property.

As types of hard landscape design, new driveways and patios introduce permanent, manmade features into front and back gardens. By creating this architecture, our landscapers not only provide a contrast with soft landscaping features like plants, flowers and trees, we also craft highly functional spaces for outside living and parking one or multiple vehicles.

At Rococo Landscaping & Building Ltd, we strive to turn any dream driveway or patio into a reality. As such, we have taken every possible step to make our landscape construction possibilities all but limitless.

Our Harpenden-based landscape design experts and onsite landscapers plan and lay driveways and patios in an array of materials, from block paving in Cuffley to pattern imprinted concrete in St Albans. Below, we have listed some of the most popular options for both of these hardscaping features:

Landscape Construction on Solid Groundworks

Whether in our hometown of Harpenden or neighbouring locations like Cuffley and St Albans, Rococo Landscaping & Building Ltd believes that new driveways and patios only have the same strength as the groundworks supporting them. As a result, during the landscape design phase, we put just as much time and effort into the supporting framework as we do the surface itself.

This preliminary stage includes several considerations, including: checks for service cables beneath the proposed site, excavating to the recommended depth for the material and soil type at hand, and calculating the anticipated loads you will place on the surface once installed.

By taking these factors into account, our landscapers ensure new driveways and patios perform to optimal standards long into the future, all while retaining their stunning aesthetic appeal. Cutting corners during the ground works phase only leads to drainage issues, subsidence and surface failure much sooner than expected.

Generally speaking, the groundworks phase of these landscape construction services in Harpenden, St Albans, Cuffley and across Hertfordshire also includes:

  • A minimum excavation depth of 150mm below the damp-proof course
  • Creation of a fall away from the property for optimal rainwater run-off
  • Laying the new surface 10mm below the soil line for easy lawn mowing

Having laid resilient groundworks, our landscapers then make a start on laying your chosen surface in line with the agreed-upon landscape design, creating immaculate driveways and patios built to last.
