Marshalls Drivesys and SUDs

Compliance with Sustained Urban Drainage (SUDs) is important. Whilst the Drivesys range provide a non permeable surface, compliance with SUDs shouldn’t be a problem as long as water can drain to a bedding area or soak away that drainage channels can direct water to.

The Drivesys range include:

Riven stone is available in Golden, Silver Grey and Basalt colour blends. Split stone is available in Grey green and Basalt colour blends.

A typical mixed set pack comes with a variety of sized blocks:

The approximate coverage per pack is 7 to 7.5 Square metres or 23 feet to 24.6 feet.

Having a mix of sizes reduces waste as less cuts of blocks are necessary.

Installation should be completed using the block paving installation guide and a range of edging options are available that can provide a striking colour contrasts.

Marshalls Drivesys cobble

The range also include Marshalls original cobble. Whilst these are not as popular as Riven stone and Split stone, if it’s the crafty rustic country look you’re after these could be for you!
