When it comes to replacing your old driveway in Dublin and thinking about getting a gravel driveway, there is the only name that pops to the top every time in County Dublin, Drivescape Paving! The Drivescape Paving team overseen and led by Michael provide an excellent service for replacing older driveways and putting in new gravel driveways in Dublin.
Although gravel might not be as popular as tarmac or paved driveway in Dublin, outside of Dublin, it is considered a trendy option due to its significant cost savings and the fact it can be tailored to any property.
It is a permeable driveway, which means that it will allow water to drain down fast as long as the base foundation is laid properly. It is available in various colours, from granite stone to autumn mix, Wicklow gold and slate. On top of that, you can order it using cobblestone or brick-paved edging and provided you pick an alternating colour; you can make the gravel colour really stand out!
A gravel driveway in Dublin will suit any home, provided you make some small adjustments to the overall finish of the driveway. For example, larger gravel driveways should have a mix of stone colours to stop them from being too plain.
Drivescape Paving recommends a nice paved border around it or kerbing it with a nice paved apron on smaller driveway areas such as terraced houses. This can create a beautiful entrance to your home at a very affordable cost.
Another feature is getting a paved or slabbed pathway through the gravel to allow ease of access if you walk through the gravel driveway. This can be built using cobbles, brick paving, tarmac, or even resin bound. We recommend this, especially in front of your door, which can be achieved by creating a false step effect that ensures the gravel stays in the driveway and not in our hallway!
