Does your construction project demand the building of a driveway? Does your property have a long driveway? Are you willing to improve your drive-ability and appearance? The cost of paving the driveway perhaps frightens you. The best option is often to build a gravel driveway. There is a range of different colours and grades of gravel available to choose from, though differing in cost. So what is a gravel driveway?
A gravel driveway is a type of paving driveway that is made up of many small stones rather than one uniform surface. Gravel is the main material involved in the gravel driveway construction process. The top layer options for gravel driveways may include crushed shale, granite, concrete, and limestone, along with other categories of gravel of different colours and styles to meet your specifications.

We don’t just do gravel driveways though! If you are considering using a different material for your driveway or paving, be sure to check out our other pages:
Over the past few years, gravel as a driveway construction material has become a preferred option over other available materials because of several reasons.
Gravel is available in a wide choice of colours and styles. Natural stones in different forms can be squashed into gravel, and this means there are plenty of colour choices to select from for your gravel driveway project. When making gravel driveways, various types of gravel can be mixed to make your driveway have a unique appearance.
Gravel as a building material for driveways does not crack or break. A gravel driveway can serve you for decades without developing an uneven surface often caused by excessive wear.
Certain driveway surfaces, such as tarmac and concrete, are usually negatively affected when exposed to harsh weather conditions like extreme winter and heavy rains which make them develop cracks. This negatively affects their appearance and their suitability as driveway surfaces.
On the other hand, gravel driveways for many years remain unaffected by extreme weather not to mention they don’t require extra drainages to cope with surface and run-off water in harsh rainstorms.
Here at Pro Driveways Sheffield, our gravel driveway installation process not only improves your home outside aesthetics but also the functionality of your exterior space too.

We have been offering prompt quality services to Sheffield for many years now. Ongoing relationships and customer satisfaction are what make us stand out from the rest of our competitors.
During the gravel driveway construction, the ground is stamped flat before gravel is put on top of it to complete the process. That is how simple the installation process can be. With gravel installation, there is no paving, drying, or sealing process to bother you, and it’s possible to use the driveway once you’re done with spreading out the gravel.
However, for quality and durable results it is important to involve an expert in your gravel driveway construction project. At Pro Driveways Sheffield, before placing the gravel on the ground, we install gravel grids on the driveway. We make sure the gravel is tightly packed into individual chambers to ensure that your driveway is weather-resistant and strong enough to withstand different weights.
