Gravel driveways are very popular driveway choices in the UK
Gravel is a common surface material for driveways throughout the UK. The crushed stone used in many applications can be easy to maintain and available in a variety of shapes and colours of gravel available have contributed to the rise in popularity of gravel driveways. Many homeowners like to match the colour of the stone in their driveway to colours in their landscape.
Gravel is an ideal surface for creating a rustic look, for covering large surface areas at the minimal expense or for creating a temporary driveway in a short amount of time. One benefit of gravel that is often overlooked is the additional security it provides a home: cars and people cannot trespass over a gravel surface without making noise, or, on fine surfaces, leaving behind footprints or tire tracks. Anyone looking to use gravel on steep hills or extremely windy areas should consult a contractor for professional advice.
- Gravel is one of the most affordable surface material options.
- Easy to maintain. Many consider a gravel driveway as easy to maintain as a paved surface.
- Quick installation. As one of the easiest driveway materials in terms of installation, laying a gravel driveway and allowing it to settle will take less than a week. Once installed, it can be used immediately
A gravel driveway can bring you many years of dependable use and enjoyment if it is properly installed and maintained. Regular maintenance should only need to be performed once or twice a year.
