We provide a very affordable gravel service in Westmeath. With options on laying new gravel driveways, replacing old driveways and building new permeable driveways to comply with SUDS regulations using gravel and shingle.
Gravel or as commonly referred to as a stone or shingle driveway, is a great way of doing any driveway. It can be a inexpensive solution when compared to other options whilst still delivering a beautiful and serviceable driveway to any home.
It is often used on larger areas where the cost of block paving or tarmacadam would be significantly more than a gravel or stoned driveway. On larger driveway areas, the price difference between gravel and other surfaces can be significant.
In front of houses, paving can be used to keep the gravel from the house. We often install paving aprons to the entrance of a gravel driveway to give it a welcome and inviting look. Make sure to check out our gallery to get some more ideas for your own gravel driveway.
Once the base is prepared, we will put in any edging, patterns, borders or aprons at this stage. This will be benched in concrete as its main primary function is to help contain the gravel to stop it spreading out.
We would then put down a heavy membrane sheeting which will allow water to drain through and keep the base separate from the gravel finish.
The final stage we would put down the gravel driveway raking it out to make sure its spread and leveled evenly across the driveway. Normally 1 to 2 inches is adequate but can vary depending on the size of the gravel you have chosen. We would recommend 20mm gravel for a driveway as its easy for cars to move through it without becoming difficult to walk on by foot.
