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

DISTINCTIVE PROPERTY CARE LTD
star-on star-on star-on star-off star-off
This company was great until it came to actually starting the job! After chasing them i was told that they needed a 50% deposit to start the job. When i refused to pay they said they couldn't do the job and that we had been mis-quoted, this is despite us all signing a contract. Even though they say they are 'Distinctive Property Care Ltd' the business card they give is for 'Gallaghers Building Contractors Ltd'. Also they have a business address of Birmingham City Centre, this should have raised alarm bells staright away but i was quite naive until they let us down. Avoid at all costs

SECURE PAVING & LANDSCAPING

I have had builders over since the job was done who have been appalled by the unprofessional job that was done. The results are not great and the place was left in a state. I was also patronised by the head guy when he made a mistake and threw out all the contents of my garden storage. The workmen had to put it all back and he chose to blame me.

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.
