Gravel driveways are a very common choice for customers that require a solution for either SUDS or are looking for a more traditional styled driveway entrance. Gravel or shingle as its commonly referred to is a natural stone product which means the colours will never fade or dull.
It can be bordered using a cobble stone, granite, cobble sets or standard block paving to hold in the gravel driveway whilst providing some contrast to the gravel stone itself.
On top of the advantages of being SUDS compliant and being a natural stone product, it has the pleasure of being the most affordable type of driveway you can have installed. If you have a larger driveway or a private roadway leading to your home, a gravel driveway will make a significant saving in comparison to tarmac or block paving.
We recommend on sloped driveways having stabilisers fitted to the driveway to stop the gravel from sliding and we always recommend having permeable weed block paving laid down to prevent weed growth and keep the sub base separate from the gravel on the driveway.
