About driveways and block paving:
Driveways can be constructed in a variety of styles. They can be small drives to park cars on or longer private drives which give access to properties set back from the road, carports, or houses. Driveways are generally constructed from materials such as concrete, decorative standard block paving, permeable block paving, brick, cobblestone, or gravel.
What are driveways and block paving used for:
Driveways are sometimes used as divisions between properties, a drive can be a simple solution for splitting two properties and their land. Offering a great solution to both parking and access problems, depending on the materials drives can last for 25 years and usually need very little maintenance to keep them looking great. The size and shape of driveways can vary, but can easily be fitted into any space. Designed mainly as a parking solution, some homes simply have a drive for show or to add value to their home.
How to choose the right driveway style and materials
Although choosing a driveway for your home may seem straight forward we understand that it really isn’t. Like anything, if you’re going to do the job correctly then you need to consider many things before making your final decision. From cost to length to usage it’s important to consider all factors to get the best drive for your needs, from block paving for a smaller and more stylish look to gravel or concrete for commercial, heavy usage or long length driveways.
Those of us looking for long term parking solutions for our own driveways are usually best off looking at block paving or permeable paved driveways, they are durable, look fabulous, and are hard-wearing.
Concrete or gravel driveways are also an option, these are typically lower in cost, they are solid in build, low maintenance and look great, making them ideal for anyone looking for a quick, easy on the pocket solution, partition for a home or multi-use driveway.
