HERNS SAND & GRAVEL has built roads ranging from short driveways to miles long roads which are built to municipal roads standard.
In every case we attempt to minimize the effects of construction while doing the work.
When you walk through a bush with us to pick out a route for a cottage road, We will comment on the various features of the lot. We point out where a tree would be lost if the road was to be placed too close, or how a group of small trees could be encouraged to grow by taking out a single tree.
We plan the route of the road so that the maximum amount of on-site material can be used with the minimum disturbance of surrounding area.
If the road is a formal one, We will walk along the potential route with the surveyors pointing out potential savings for the client if they survey a route taking into account the underlying material even if the route is slightly longer.
This frequently has the benefit of making a more picturesque road at the same time.
