Gravel driveways are very popular driveway choices in the UK
Gravel is a common surface material for driveways throughout the UK. The crushed stone used in many applications can be easy to maintain and available in a variety of shapes and colours of gravel available have contributed to the rise in popularity of gravel driveways. Many homeowners like to match the colour of the stone in their driveway to colours in their landscape.
Gravel is an ideal surface for creating a rustic look, for covering large surface areas at the minimal expense or for creating a temporary driveway in a short amount of time. One benefit of gravel that is often overlooked is the additional security it provides a home: cars and people cannot trespass over a gravel surface without making noise, or, on fine surfaces, leaving behind footprints or tire tracks. Anyone looking to use gravel on steep hills or extremely windy areas should consult a contractor for professional advice.

What Our Customers Say
Just had Darren and his lads from ABEL LANDSCAPES round to build me a waterfall that flows into my pond. Cannot fault these guys, they were very professional in their approach yet friendly at the same time. Nothing was too much trouble if I wanted a rock moved to a different position they were only willing to help. Pictures were taken at different stages of the job and sent to Darren to meet his approval. All in all, a great job must say I’m overly pleased with what ABEL achieved, and in a short timescale. The lads were really friendly and cleaned up after they finished each day. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone. 10 out of 10.Mr & Mrs Jones, Warrington
