Hi, Sorry if this is the wrong place to post but I am about to buy a house and trying to budget for some of the work we want to do to it. I would usually get some quotes, but as we haven't moved in yet I can't get people reviewing it!
As it's only got one parking space, we were considering excavating the front garden thing, and paving it to turn it into a flatter driveway, has anyone done anything similar and have any idea roughly how much it may cost. We arent in London, and are in an average earning area of the UK.

I know the price will be subject to lots of things, but we are just working on a budget of key things we need to do.

I have added a picture of the bit I mean

you will need to check with the local council - you may well need planning permission and to have a water permeable substrate

as for a price, How long is a piece of string, as there are so many variables

As per Bob225, any new drive will need to be porous and just clearing out those shrubs will probably be £ 800/£1000 before looking at levelling.
