As our name suggests, we here at Meadow Drives and Patios specialise in offering our customers a wide range of bespoke driveway designs and installations for competitive and affordable rates in Lancashire. One of the most popular and stylish options we offer is a range of bespoke gravel driveway solutions that are not only stylish, but easily maintainable and add to the visual appeal of your property.
Your driveway is often the first part of your property any visitors will see, and a stylish gravel driveway that is in keeping with the overall appearance of your home will create a striking first impression. But what advantages are there to gravel driveways over other alternative designs, and what can you expect when working with our team?
The Advantages of a Gravel Driveway Surface
While asphalt and paved driveways are often a popular choice when designing a driveway, these surfaces overtime begin to suffer from the general wear and tear from the heavy vehicles and foot traffic that they experience over the years, as well as the unpredictable British weather. Cracks, gaps in mortar, dips from pooling rain and weeds will all have to be dealt with, often being quite expensive to repair.
Gravel, however, can be easily and affordably replaced and respreads with a rake, often without contractors having to be called. Thanks to it not being a solid surface, rainwater will easily drain between the gravel and back into the earth, preventing pooling or flooding from excess runoff.
- Minimal maintenance
- Suitable for any type of vehicle
- A variety of colours available to match your home’s aesthetic

A gravel driveway will easily last you for decades of reliable service, and our team at Meadow Drives and Patios will be more than happy to help you with any additional requirements you may need.
Our design and installation process is entirely transparent, with our team keeping you updated every step of the way, so you won’t have to worry about any nasty hidden costs.
