Discussing Driveways in Cornwall

Is your driveway looking old and tired? Is it full of weeds and potholes?

Have you considered a new driveway, but are unsure what to choose?

There are several options that you could choose for a new driveway surface.

Block Paving

This can look great if done properly, unfortunately it doesn’t last. Over time the colour will fade, weeds will grow and the rain will also erode the surface making it look old. It can also become slippery when wet.


This looks amazing when it is first done but again over time you can end up with cracks, potholes and weed growth.

Resin Bound Gravel

This surface is very aesthetically pleasing and it is also permeable which prevents standing water. It minimises weed and moss growth, is UV stable, which means it remains true even in direct sunlight and it comes with a 10 year guarantee but will last in excess of 25 years. It is great for both domestic and commercial customers, is available in a wide range of colours and aggregates and leaves a seamless, decorative, anti slip surface. The resin gravel system is not only for driveways; it is also ideal for patios, pool surrounds, conservatory floors, bathrooms, communal areas and beer gardens.
