Inspiration and ideas.
A great place to start is to find examples of driveways you like. Pinterest or a simple google image search will give you a wealth of ideas. Be careful though as these will usually showcase the higher end driveways in terms of cost. We can, of course, give you different options based on your budget. So its also a good idea to know how much you are willing to spend on your new driveway.
Gravel driveways are usually the most affordable option and there is a great variety of gravel to choose from. Including Blue Slate, Cantebury Spar, Cheshire Pink, Dove Grey, Green Bassalt and Pink Rose to name a few.
Monoblocking and Tegula Paving are 2 of our most popular paving options, both are easy to maintain and look great in all weather conditions.
Standing water can create huge problems for driveways but with our years of experience we plan for drainage right from the start of the job, so you will never need to worry about water deteriorating your lovely new driveway.
As with all driveways, regular maintenance will be needed to ensure your driveways stays in great condition. With gravel driveways, you should rake the stones once or twice a month and with paved driveways take control of the weeds right from the start with a good quality weed killer, take out any of the bigger weeds by hand and give the entire driveway a good wash down with a hose.
