Driveways & Gravelling

Resin Bond - Tarmac - Gravel

Driveways are an essential part of many properties, and choosing the right materials and construction methods is crucial, and the choice between them depends on your specific needs and preferences.


  • Resin bond driveways offer an attractive, low-maintenance, and permeable option.

  • Gravel driveways are cost-effective and have a rustic charm but require more maintenance.

  • Tarmac driveways are durable and provide a smooth surface but may require maintenance to prevent cracking and sealing.


When planning your driveway, consider factors like your budget, the local climate and weather conditions, maintenance preferences, and the aesthetic you want to achieve. Unsure which direction to go in? We can advise the best material for your specific project, to ensure a high-quality installation and finish.

Which Material?

Resin Bond


Resin bond driveways, also known as resin-bound driveways, are a popular choice for those seeking an attractive and durable surface. They consist of a layer of natural or coloured aggregates (gravel, stone, or glass) bound together with a clear resin.


  • Attractive appearance with a variety of coluor options.

  • Permeable, allowing water to drain through and reduce the risk of flooding.

  • Low maintenance; it's resistant to weeds and oil stains.

  • Smooth and comfortable to walk or drive on.


It may cost more than traditional gravel driveways.

Proper installation is essential to ensure durability.

Gravel Driveways

Gravel driveways consist of loose gravel or crushed stone spread and compacted over the driveway area.


  • Economical and relatively easy to install.

  • Good drainage properties.

  • The gravel is available in various sizes and colours.

  • Provides a rustic and natural look.


  • Prone to shifting and ruts, which may require periodic maintenance.

  • Not as smooth for driving as other options.

  • May need periodic regrading and additional gravel to maintain the surface.

Tarmac (Asphalt)

Tarmac driveways, also known as asphalt driveways, are constructed by laying a mixture of asphalt and aggregate over a prepared base.


  • Smooth and durable surface, ideal for vehicles.

  • Quick installation, with minimal curing time.

  • Provides a classic, clean appearance.

  • Easy to repair if damaged.



  • Non-permeable, which can contribute to water runoff and flooding if not properly managed.

  • Can show cracks and require periodic maintenance, such as sealing and patching.

  • Limited design options compared to resin bond driveways.
