Our diverse product range and installation knowledge means we have the ability to offer a variety of driveway solutions for all budgets.
We have a combination of the latest driveway systems available and traditional methods that mean we can cater to any driveway requirement. We will work with you to advise on the best solution for your requirements and explain the installation process.
Whether you are looking for a traditional, contemporary or futuristic finish, we have the designs and materials available to offer the perfect solution. We use patented paving materials such as Priora and Drivesys which are man made but have a natural looking finish or offer a permeable membrane to help with drainage and run off water.
As part of our design / installation process we always consider water channels and drainage to ensure no water damage is incurred once your new driveway is complete. We can also pave over any manholes so that they fit in with the new design and look more subtle and discreet.
Additional features available as part of our Driveway installation:
- Adding security posts; if you want more control over who can access your drive these are a simple and stylish solution. They can also help deter theft.
- Introducing kerbs; ideal if you want a neater partition between your driveway and lawn or other areas.

Driveway Drainage and Regulations
In 2008 the laws surrounding paving your front garden changed and it is now required that you get planning permission before any such work takes place.
The main reason behind making planning permission a must have, is due to ensuring that water run off is considered and methods are considered to prevent flooding to public roads and neighbouring houses. However, the rules around planning permission are quite complex - it can be dependant on the materials you choose and the style of your home, for example if you live in a listed building you will definitely need planning permission. But if you don't live in a listed building and you choose certain materials for your driveway you can be exempt from needing permission.
Examples of materials you can use to avoid needing planning permission include:
- Porous asphalt
- Permeable paves
- Porous clay paves
If you are unsure what materials you want, we can guide you through the best solution for your home and offer different options depending on what sort of style and design you want. However, it's good to be aware before you start a driveway project that planning permission may be required.
