Gravel ferricrete hardstand parking area driveway - Greenmount Perth hills

Gravel ferricrete hardstand parking area driveway - Greenmount Perth hills

Oct 2016

Also in Greenmount, in the Perth hills, this house needed some additional parking areas along the front of the house. They chose not to seal the parking area, as they prefer the natural look of gravel / ferricrete surfaces common in the Perth hills area.

After the gravel is spread and levelled, it is compacted and waterbound which is why the surface appears wet in the photo. Over the next few days, it will dry and form a very hard and usable surface. Gravel, roadbase or limestone hardstand surfaces are more economical than hotmix/bitumen/asphalt sealed surfaces, but will require a little bit more maintenance over the years as they can be affected by traffic and water run off.
