There are so many reasons why you should opt for gravel driveways, below are the advantages that you derive when you choose gravel as your driveway option.
Gravel is one of the most affordable surfacing options available on the market, so has become very popular especially for homes with long driveways. Even when combined with some block paved features etc, it is still easy on your budget.
EASY TO MAINTAIN
Other than a top-dressing being required for the gravel material every few years, a gravel driveway is considered to be as easy to maintain as a paved surface. Gravel may sink due to environmental conditions such as heavy rainwater or snow, this is why filling in these sunken areas is occasionally required. Other than that all you will need to do is rake the stone back into place occasionally, and because gravel is permeable, it allows water to drain off into the ground.
QUICK TO INSTALL
Ordinarily installation of a gravel driveway can be completed in under a week, and once it in and settled you are able to make use of it right away.
