Gravel paving and driveways

Gravel paving and driveways

In the UK, gravel driveways have shot to popularity, replacing block paving as the nation’s favourite material.

It’s easy to see why it has become so popular too, not only looking great, but being easy to maintain too. It’s hugely successful in creating an aesthetically pleasing look, especially in the country settings where materials tend to be stone and brick.

With gravel driveways you’ll also have a wide variety of choice, with the size of area covered, colour and texture. As an added benefit, gravel paving can even act as a security measure, alerting you to anyone coming towards the house.

The maintenance of gravel driveways

The maintenance of gravel driveways is generally very straightforward. Of course, as with anything it will eventually deteriorate over time and dirt, dust and weeds will begin to take over.

To keep the fantastic look gravel paving originally creates it’s important to maintain. This can be just removing weeds and spraying weed killer, or sweeping escaped gravel back into place.

If a vehicle is constantly using the surface, the top gravel layer will eventually need replacing over time. The weight of the vehicle will slowly break down the gravel pieces and make the surface compact.

Benefits of gravel driveways

With a gravel driveway you’ll benefit from a range of features including:

  • An aesthetically pleasing look for your front garden which will last for years with little maintenance

  • An ultimate choice in style, colour and area covered by the gravel

  • A surface that matches with your home’s exterior look

  • A cheaper alternative to adding something different to your front area

  • Added security to your home

I was happy with start of work and speed of which it was initially done. I paid on completion, without checking. It has not been finished to a good let alone a high standard! They have continually promised to come and correct the mistakes. Work was ‘finished’ and paid for on the 25th October. I am still waiting for work to be sorted, rubbish to be cleared, promises to be fulfilled and calls and messages to be replied back to...... DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY PLEASE

Excellent company! The job has been done in less than two days in spite of the heat . They start working early morning of the 24th July and finished on the 25 th. My garden has been transformed from very dull with a dozen of plants sitting in pots around a cracked concreted area to a stunning modern looking garden which I am going to enjoy. He used resin, bricks and gravel. No job is difficult for his friendly and hard working team. I highly praise their skills and talents.

Energy Performance of Houses

Properties are given an energy ranking dependent on how efficient they are and ratings are displayed in the information beneath. This varies from A, the most energy efficient, to G, the least efficient. With a higher rating you're more likely to have less expensive energy bills as more heat is going to be retained inside your home. You'll be able to increase your home's efficiency with insulation such as double glazing, loft lagging or wall cavity insulation.
