I want a new drive
I hate my house’s front garden. There it is. I said it and I’m not ashamed. I am simply not a gardener. This girl would rather have her feet up after a busy day at work than having to spend hours on end making sure that every stupid plant in that garden has been trimmed to perfection. It’s just not my thing and it's something that I wasn’t really anticipating when I moved into my first house a couple of months back.
I’ve spent far more time than I could justify merely thinking about my gardening woes and I’ve come up with a simple solution: Alberta asphalt. See, as much as I love my new home there is a pretty big downside in that the garden means that I don’t have a driveway to park my. It’s hardly the most secure situation having to park one's car on the road and I’d much rather have it closer to the house so that I can keep an eye on it and feel a little bit safer.
So why not kill two birds with one stone? I’ll get rid of that pesky garden and I’ll have a gorgeous new driveway made from the finest quality Alberta asphalt. The problem now is in finding a good company with whom I can get the job done properly and won’t be ripped off.
I’ve already had a couple around so that I can gauge the prices from different companies. I must say that it is rather remarkable to see just how much variation there is in the prices these guys are charging, despite the fact that they are all offering the same Alberta asphalt service.
The web has been something of a life saver with this little endeavour and I’ve managed to compile feedback on a number of the companies that I have already spoken to. It’s a good thing too because apparently my previous frontrunner is absolutely terrible when it comes to the job of laying down Alberta asphalt. They talk a good game and I have to admit that I was drawn in but my research has shown me the error of my ways. I’ll have to make sure that I’m a little more vigilant as I continue my search. Luckily, I have a couple of irons in the fire so watch this space as I should have my new driveway done before you know it.
