Langshott Landscapes can do more to make your new driveway or garden a usable part of your home environment and welcoming living space.
A beautiful way to emphasise a new driveway or landscaping is by the use of lighting. You can use driveway lighting to illuminate parking spaces and pathways by using recessed light, that is, sunken lights along the edges of your path or driveway, and for indicating hazards, such as steps.
Garden lighting and deck lights are also wonderful way of creating an ambient atmosphere if you enjoy outdoor entertaining or like to have a peaceful softly lit space in your garden in the evenings.
Lighting can also be used to enhance your home security system using wall mounted motion sensor lighting. In addition Langshott Landscapes can also install additional security measures, such as telescopic security posts and gates.
A new driveway would not be complete without drainage, we are able to fit the most appropriate drainage system for you needs. As a Marshall’s approved installer we can fit s their modular, integrated drainage systems that are both beautiful in form and function.
Driveway surfacing can be more complicated than simply installing a new drive, in some instances you will require planning permission from your local council. If you currently have an existing driveway it is unlikely you will require additional permission. If you plan on widening / enlarging your existing driveway it’s recommended that you contact your local authority before commissioning work to avoid disruption or ultimately your local council forcing the removal of your new driveway. From 1st October 2008 new rules apply for householders wanting to pave over their front gardens.
You will NOT need planning permission if a new driveway uses permeable (or porous) surfacing which allows water to drain through, such as a gravel driveway, permeable concrete block paving or porous asphalt, or if the rainwater is directed to a lawn or border to drain naturally.
Langshott Landscapes & Construction are registered and approved with both West Sussex County Council and Reigate & Banstead Council for excavation in the highway. This means that we are licensed to lower the pavement for vehicle access to your driveway (also known as kerb dropping or drop curb); however, you will need to apply to your respective council for permission.
