After much research and deliberation, we have decided on cobble brick paving for the road.
This seemed to be the least invasive on the environment and the bricks used are defect bricks, rejected in the brick making process. So we are effectively using bricks that would have been discarded.
The broken bricks are laid and then a sand cement mix is swept into the gaps to form an attractive and fairly eco-friendly cobble brick road.
The turning circle has been made nice and large for all the Mom’s with 4×4’s and it allows for ample parking off of the circle in all directions. Hopefully making morning drop off and afternoon collection time a pleasant experience for all!
