Are you wondering what the benefits of gravel driveways are?
Take a look at some of these reasons to get us to lay one for you.
It’s nice to know if somebody is approaching your home.
But unless you’ve got a gravel driveway, you might not hear them.
Gravel makes a characteristic rustling noise as it’s crushed by approaching car tyres, alerting you to the fact that somebody is approaching your property, adding a much-needed layer of security.
No surface lasts forever, including gravel.
But thanks to their simplicity, using gravel for drives makes maintenance incredibly easy.
All that’s usually required is a squirt of weed killer and sweeping any gravel that has escaped off to the sides back into the driveway.
If you need to cover a large area at low cost, gravel is an excellent option.
Regular pea shingle is one of the cheapest aggregates available and comes in a range of qualities.
High-quality driveways use rounded pea shingle where stones are generally smooth, making them safe for vehicles and easy on tyres.
Gravel driveways are suitable for access roads, cheap home driveways, private roads and some commercial applications.
Laying a gravel driveway isn’t as simple as pouring aggregate on top of topsoil.
It requires careful preparation of the ground.
To correctly pave the way for a gravel driveway requires extraction of the topsoil, and the insertion of a geotextile membrane to stop stones from being lost to the earth below.
At Complete Drives and Patios, our workers are highly trained and lay gravel driveways according to best industry practice, including laying the sub-base and the geotextile membrane.
