Images Note:

All of the images on our website are of actual GWH projects and are taken by our own photographer. Unfortunately, some less scrupulous ‘traders’ have been using our photo’s and claiming them as their own work. To prevent this plagiary, we are now forced to watermark our photos. We do have an album of original photo’s which we are more than happy to show to prospective clients.

Permeable Paving Driveway

Permeable Paving

See More...

Back in October 2008, the government introduced planning legislation that apply to the paving over of front gardens. Consequently, planning permission is now required to lay traditional impermeable driveways that allow uncontrolled runoff of rainwater onto the roads because this can contribute to flooding and pollution of watercourses. The new planning rules aim to reduce the volume of water running from driveways directly into urban drains. A permeable paving system enables rainfall to soak into the subsoil where it can drain harmlessly away rather than run off into hard pressed drains.
