What do you need to know about gravel or shingle driveway installation?

A gravel or shingle driveway is a sensible and cheap option, as long as your driveway area is completely flat. The cost of having this kind of driveway installed can vary considerably depending on the required work. Removing an existing driveway, particularly fitted slabs and tarmac, can add a lot to your quote. The area will need to be levelled before work can begin. If this is a simple task you can do it yourself to save money. When it comes to the actual installation there are a few things to consider. Is there adequate drainage? Will weed killer need to be applied and will you want sheeting to prevent them growing back? Speaking generally, prep work will at least include installing a sub base and membrane. A good thing about gravel and shingles is the amount of choice you have in terms of size, shape and grade, so look around to find the best option within your budget. Usually, the cost of installing a gravel or shingle driveway will be calculated in square meters, so it is a good idea to do measurements of the area before contacting a tradesman for a quote. An average driveway of this type may cost around £1,500 depending on your location in the UK, but be sure to collect multiple quotes to compare and check the experience of your choices before making a final decision on who to hire.
