How to take charge of your home driveway & footpath.
The driveway is the first thing that guests see when arriving at the home, so it's vital that a good impression is made straight away. There are many options available to create a stunning and modern driveway and footpath that will impress all your visitors. With the new year upon us, what better time to update and refresh your outdoor living space.
There are many different types of driveway, including paved and cobblestoned. Gravel driveways are not only very popular but are durable and long lasting with the correct care and maintenance. Many people prefer the look of gravel driveways as they create a rustic, warm and inviting impression, such as Cotswold 20mm chippings. Made from limestone, the soft cream colour of Cotswold chippings creates a welcoming ambiance, and the hard angles of the stone help to bounce the light. This means that the chippings are perfect for brightening up dark or shaded areas.
Gravel is permeable, meaning that rainwater will penetrate through the gaps in the stones and into the ground, replenishing groundwater.
Gravel driveways can also add to home security, as the crunch of gravel underfoot can alert a home owner to any intruders.
