Choosing the right materials for your Driveway

Your driveway is a statement that you make to everyone who passes by. After all, how we take care of the exterior of our home can say a lot about who lives there. When it comes to choosing a material for a new driveway, it’s not uncommon to become overwhelmed at the choices available. The team here at Kings Driveways are back with part two of our two-part blog series. Here are some more driveway materials available.

Gravel

For a more relaxed driveway, gravel is an excellent material. These driveways are created using loose gravel that has been poured into a barrier. For areas with long country driveways, gravel can be a great addition to a landscape. On the other hand, it must be raked often and replaced every few years.

Cobblestone

Cobblestone can make you feel as if your driveway is the walkway to an old fashion 18th century castle, however, this comes with a hefty price tag. Despite this, the material can last for years and the addition of wear and tear is welcomed as it can add features to your driveway.

Glass

We aren’t talking about the same glass you use on your windows, we’re talking about a mosaic of thick glass that is sealed within resin. Interestingly, recycled glass is used for these driveways which saves them from landfill. The colours can be varied and it is important to consult a professional. You’ll need the job done right with a glass driveway, as cheap labour doesn’t usually result in quality labour.

Being able to understand the range of different driveway materials that are available on the market can make your whole driveway experience a whole lot easier. For more information on how to make the best first impression with your driveway contact us here at Kings Driveways
