Garden Driveways

A well installed driveway will not only transform your home but will add market value to your property. We design and install all types of garden driveways, with a vast choice of different materials and colours to suit your needs.

Materials for Garden Driveways

Gardens Galore are experienced driveway installers and we can guide you in making the right choice of materials for you, your home and your budget.

Preparation is key to creating a long lasting driveway and our expert team will ensure the ground is prepared to exact specification ensuring many years of use and good looks.

Edgings are an essential part of any driveway to provide restraint for materials or for long term structural stability. Available in in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colours, they can also add the finishing touch to complement the style of the driveway.

Gravel Garden Driveways

Always popular due to being attractive, cost effective, durable and relatively easy to maintain.

There are many different colours and types of gravel available to complement your property or existing landscaping.

Geo-textile membrane and compacted hardcore will be laid prior to laying the chosen gravel.

In some instances, gravel stabiliser sheets are required to help keep the gravel in place and prevent it from slipping or sinking into the ground. This also makes it easier to manoeuvre prams, buggies and wheelchairs.


Gravel driveways can be easily maintained with an occasional rake to re-distribute gravel and to remove leaves and other debris.

Any weeds should be regularly removed by hand or with spot weedkiller.

Block paving garden driveway | Driveway installation

Block Paving

Mono block paving is a popular and decorative choice for a driveway that can add real kerb appeal to your home. It not only provides an attractive and enhanced entrance to your property, but is practical, hard wearing and easy to clean.

There are a wide variety of blocks available from setts in natural stone such as sandstone or granite, to contemporary porcelain and concrete options in a wide variety of shapes, colours and textures. Blocks can be laid in a variety of patterns and colours to give a unique look to your driveway.

Geo-textile membrane, compacted hardcore and a screed of sand or crushed stone will be laid before the blocks are installed in the chosen pattern.


Mono block driveways are very hard wearing and can withstand heavy usage. They can be easily maintained with an occasional sweep or light power wash. Any damaged blocks can usually be easily replaced.

Weeds or moss can sometimes grow in the gaps between the blocks and should be removed regularly. Keeping the driveway free of dirt, debris and leaves will help to prevent weeds and moss from becoming established.

Resin bound gravel | Garden driveways

Resin Bound Gravel

Resin bound gravel is becoming an increasingly popular choice for driveways. Available in a huge range of colours to suit every taste, resin bound gravel provides a stylish finish to complement any property.

Coloured aggregates are mixed with polyurethane resin to form a permeable surface which allows water to drain naturally through the finished surface.

Geo-textile membrane, compacted hardcore and a screed of concrete will be laid before applying the resin bound gravel. This installation must be carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions by a qualified contractor to provide a driveway that will last many years.


Resin bound gravel provides a smooth, strong, highly durable and attractive surface requiring very little maintenance. Weeds cannot grow through the surface and an occasional sweep or hose down will keep the driveway looking good.

This was my first garden project and I was looking for a landscaping company with a reputation for reliability and service to provide a low-maintenance solution for my drive and front garden. I am happy to say that I have been impressed with all aspects of the work done by Gardens Galore. From the initial planning through to the day-to-day management of the project, the company provided a thoroughly professional service. Deliveries of materials and uplift of debris and rubble had been carefully scheduled. At the end of each day, the site was left clean and tidy. I thought the team who built the drive and paving were first-rate. They were happy to answer any questions and clearly took pride in their work. I am delighted with the finished project and would go to Gardens Galore for future landscaping work.
