Avoid the legal blues

We‘ve all heard the stories of law suits that arise from pedestrians tripping over in public areas or vehicles damaged by breaks in surfaces. Don’t be found liable for damage where injuries that occur as a result of pavement hazards. In any area that is subject to public traffic, whether its pedestrian foot traffic or vehicle traffic, ensure your asphalt surfaces are free from potential trip hazards by checking for early signs wear and damage.

Get it fixed early and spend less time defending legal action!

Asphalt in parks and gardens

When properly prepared, asphalt surfaces should not only look good but will also retard root growth from trees in neighbouring garden beds and tree plantings. This not only helps keep the area safe from potential trip hazards but also helps the trees, allowing them to grow more naturally and possibly avoiding expensive tree removal down the track.

Unlike concrete, asphalt is more forgiving and easier to repair and can be contoured to work with the trees rather than against them.

Consider using asphalt rather than concrete or paving in areas that are sensitive to tree growth.

Keeping your landscaping beautiful

We all know the benefits of landscaping around and throughout your car parking areas. It will not only keep the area looking beautiful, it’s also good for the environment. Landscaping prevents soil erosion, reduces carbon dioxide through photosynthesis and reduces storm water drainage problems. It also reduces the detrimental effects of wind and noise and provides heat-reducing shade.

Keeping the landscaping in place can sometimes be a challenge especially if you don’t want to fence it off. Weed growth and water runoff causing potholing are just some of the potential hazards.

If you want to provide a beautiful yet unobtrusive backdrop to your landscaped gardens then you should consider asphalting around your garden beds. Asphalt is easier to maintain, more robust than pebble mix and more stable than concrete or paving.
