Fresh Gravel In Stoke On Trent This WinterPosted on - 29.10.21
We use gravel in a number of ways around our homes and business. And over time, you may notice that your gravel doesn't look as bright and vibrant as it once did. Or if you had your driveway gravelled, you may now be noticing a few thinning patches. So let's get you some fresh gravel in Stoke on Trent!
Gravel driveways look great! And over winter they can be far more practical than their smoother counterparts. Once we start getting ice on the ground, tarmac drives can become a treacherous ice rink. However, gravel allows what would be surface water to drain through, leaving you with a rougher surface, with less chance of slips and falls.
The only downside to a gravel driveway is depending on the gravel you choose, and the tread on your tyres, it can be taken off the drive. When this happens it's time to refill with fresh gravel. Or we can look at alternative gravels that you may not lose so easily.
The most common type of gravel driveway is either Cotswold Stone or golden gravel. Golden Gravel is more likely to get stuck in tyres due to its side, however, larger vehicles suck as those with all-terrain vehicles will collect more Cotswold Stone.
For a spot of something different, why not consider Plum Slate for your driveway? Its flatter surface allows your tyres to move across without collecting any. However, please note that this can be slippery in the ice.
If you are looking to replace or replenish your gravel in Stoke on Trent, please contact the team at D Price and Sons to discuss the most appropriate quantity for your space.
In recent years, the use of gravel in gardens has returned to its previous level of popularity. From surrounding the underneath of trees (you know that patch where you can't get anything to grow) to fill in borders. And even as an alternative to a paved patio.
We love the use of coloured gravel in the garden! Our red and green granite looks right at home in most gardens, with their natural, earthy tones. While the plum slate offers a somewhat sophisticated finish.
On the opposition, if you are looking for a modern finishing touch, Limestone gives a chalky white appearance. Great to make the rest of the colours in your garden POP!
