Driveways – different types

The driveway is the first thing we encounter when arriving at a house and the last thing we see when we leave. There are several materials to choose from when laying the path for a lasting impression.

Block pave driveways

Block pave driveways are a wonderful option for homeowners who want a richly textured driveway. Driveway paving stones are low-maintenance and come in a variety of very attractive colours, shapes and styles

Tarmac driveways

Tarmac is ideal for high and low-traffic driveways. Extremely versatile, it offers a long life under any level of traffic. The smooth, tidy finish of a freshly-laid tarmac drive can instantly update and refresh the outside of your home.

Gravel driveways

The least expensive driveway option is gravel or crushed stone. A wide variety of crushed stone materials offer you several choices in color and overall look.
