All about asphalt edging

Unlike concrete, laying asphalt does not require boxed forms. This means that asphalt can be curved and arched – a process not easily achieved with concrete which needs formwork to contain it while it sets. If you need a more precise edge to your asphalt, you can use asphalt edging which is a hard durable, 90 degree material similar to garden edging. Budget Asphalt can supply and install treated timber edging which is 75mm x 38mm. It can be installed to suit just about any curve and corner. Installed prior to the asphalt laying, asphalt edging will provide a natural barrier to adjacent landscape gardening or retaining walls while making the edges crisper, leading to less maintenance. Talk to Budget Asphalt about asphalt edging for a more defined look.

Speed bumps save lives

Slowing down traffic, especially in areas shared with pedestrians, can be lifesaving and may prevent dangerous vehicle versus foot traffic incidents. The best way to control traffic speed in built up areas is to install asphalt speed bumps which cause vehicles to reduce speed to a level that is more sympathetic with the traffic flow. Budget Asphalt can install speed bumps to suit the surrounds and we even provide line marking to new and existing speed bumps.

Asphalt on softer surfaces

Depending on the soil, dig outs in preparation for asphalt surfaces can remain soft which may lead to instability once the asphalt is laid. To counter this, a road base that is mixed with cement may be a good option for a more stable underlay for asphalt. Cement treated road base mixes obviously harden and can be compacted to form a firmer base. This means that the asphalt overlay will be more durable especially when subject to vehicle traffic. This will lead to longer lasting asphalt surface that stand up to heavier use.
