Choosing the perfect Driveway

Choosing the perfect Driveway

The materials that you use on your driveway must be practical, attractive and durable.

This can be quite a hard combination to make work. But never fear, we are here to help. This article is all about the materials that you can use to make your driveway look great.

Remember that your drive will be used everyday so durability is important but so is the look. You are going to look at it everyday of course!

Asphalt driveways

First up is asphalt, now asphalt may not sound too pleasing to the eye but it can be. With a mixture of stones scattered on top before it is compacted down it can look great. The stones break up the pure blackness of the asphalt and add a bespoke character to your driveway.

Paved driveways

Paved driveways can also look great. The best part about paving slabs now is that there is so much choice.

Using paving slabs for your driveway is a great way to get a bespoke look without breaking the bank. The natural colouring of the paving stones also blends in more if you have hedges around your driveway.

Concrete driveways

Concrete driveways are durable which makes them great for heavier vehicles. Concrete can also take oil and other fluids hitting it without it damaging the surface. Concrete will of course stain from oil but the driveway won't become damaged from it.

Gravel driveways

Gravel driveways are quick and easy to lay. They are great if you have a large area to cover quickly. They last a long time and require very little maintenance.

You may want to move the gravel around every so often so an even cover remains. Gravel driveways look great but aren't great for the bare feet trips to the bins! Speak to us about driveway installations in Maidstone and Kent.
