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

No comment, cause haven’t had any quotes
By - Karenza N.
Quotatis gave us one name only, and this company came. However, we are left unsatisfied with the work done - MJ Drives did not finish the job properly, they did not do as they said they would, they asked us for money before it was finished, and then they STILL have not given us a receipt for the money paid. We would like them to come back and put right some wobbly paving. They went off with our brushes and we had a fight to get the money back to replace them. i would not recommend them to anyone.

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.
