Driveways and Hardstandings

If you have an existing driveway that has seen better days or you’re considering a brand new installation then we can help. We’re happy to come and see you, offer advice and provide you with a no-obligation quote outlining your options.

Below are the four surfaces that we install most regularly for our customers.


Our most requested finish with customers due to its lifespan and value for money. Tarmac provides a strong yet flexible surface that will last with zero maintenance. The addition of block edgers and borders can help to break up the appearance if preferred.

Block Paving

Block paving is a perennial favourite with a wider range of colours and finishes available than ever before. From rural styled cobbles or tegulars to more contemporary and modern straight-cut fittings there is sure to be something to suit your style.


A hardwearing, economic solution for customers that like the longevity and maintenance-free aspects of tarmac but prefer a light coloured finish. Like tarmac, concrete surfaces can be offset nicely with block borders and edges.

Gravel / Chippings

Loose stone driveways will not be a viable option for every property but they do provide a very economical solution for many – particularly popular in more rural settings. The installation of a good sub-base is essential to stop too many stones escaping!
