They offer a level of security

It is a Permeable Surface

Instant Transformation

Laying a paved driveway or a tarmac driveway can take a lot of time and the results are not as quick. Installing a gravel driveway is quick and instantly transforms your home, giving it a fresh and brighter look.

Easy to Maintain

The great thing about gravel driveways is that they require no effort to maintain. Unlike other forms of driveway that require washing and brushing, a gravel driveway remains looking the same from the moment it is installed. Every now and again you will need to give it a rake to even it out but even that is not an effort and once or twice a year, you can put down some weed killer.

Of course, there is always a disadvantage to anything of this nature and although a gravel driveway comes with a huge number of advantages, there is one minor issue that you will have to deal with which is the shifting of the gravel over time. This shift and movement will mean that your driveway will need to be filled in periodically. However, this is not as big a problem as a driveway that is filled with grime or a driveway filled with cracks. When the time comes, if your driveway needs a quick fill, why not give us a call, we can take care of it.
