Why Go For Gravel?

Loose gravel driveways in Sussex and Surrey are a popular choice for residents – and for good reason. A wonderful, cost effective alternative to tarmac, resin, or paving, a gravel driveway creates a great looking usable surface for vehicles. Gravel is long lasting and provides great drainage, which is a big plus knowing English weather! On top of this, it is also really quick to install. Taking around 40% of the time it takes to install a tarmac drive, the SGS team usually install most residential gravel driveways in 1-2 days. Even with the quick turnover time, our team can help make your new gravel area really stand out, with a variety of different edging options as well as a range of gravel products to choose from. Got a specific vision in mind, or feeling a bit vague about how you’d like your gravel driveway to look? We will happily spend time before the project begins, discussing your options with you.

Benefits of Gravel Driveways

Gravel driveways are one of the most affordable options for your home. Though a lower cost than other driveway options, you’ll still be investing in a driveway that will last your property a long time and require minimal maintenance.

You won’t have to worry about constant upkeep, as gravel driveways are a low maintenance choice for your home. Once we’ve installed the driveway, patio, or path, all you need to do is occasionally rake the surface to ensure it stays level. Installing the gravel with the inclusion of a gravel grid will keep movement of the stones to a minimum, so this shouldn’t be too much of an issue, even with regular use. Topping up the driveway with a thin layer of fresh gravel may be necessary from time to time, but can be easily done at home hassle free, without the need to pay for a specialist.

The loose nature of the gravel is also one of the great advantages of a gravel driveway as it allows water to drain freely through the gaps. It is the ideal driveway for the UK, or any area that experiences heavy rainfall or is close to sea level. Living in or around Brighton & Hove? Your home might just be best served by a gravel driveway.

If you are looking to update your driveway in a hurry, loose gravel is a great option that can be installed very quickly in comparison to tarmac or resin-bound gravel.

Materials & Designs 

Driveways don’t have to be boring! Gravel varies in size, shape and colour. We have a variety of different materials for you to choose from. From finer gravel to larger stones, pebbles and cobbles in cool or warm tones, we’ll help find the right material for your property. Whatever gravel you decide to go for, complement it with contrasting edges laid in a choice of granite, brick, concrete or stone. In this way you can curate a gravel driveway, path, or patio space that suits the overall look of your home.

We usually install the gravel over a driveway gravel grid, which helps keep it all in place and minimise migration. The grid, often made of a recycled plastic material, keeps the gravel secure and helps create a permeable drainage system for driveways and parking surfaces. The SGS Surfacing team will work with you and your requests, to source the right materials and colours to suit your property.
