Your driveway is probably the first thing most people see when they pull up outside your home. Kerb appeal matters, so if your driveway is infested with weeds or has seen better days, we recommend you replace it with a new one.
Aggregates are a popular option for driveways. Gravel, stone chips, and slate are easy to lay, relatively inexpensive, and low maintenance. When mixed with resin, aggregates are hard wearing and very attractive. We are often asked about the pros and cons of different aggregates, so to help you choose the most suitable aggregate for your driveway, here is a quick buyer’s guide.
Different Types of Aggregate
High-quality aggregates bound with resin produce a strong, attractive surface for a driveway or path. Aggregates are available in a wide range of different colours and coarseness.
Plain or Patterned
The great thing about having such a wide choice of driveway aggregates is that you can create a highly decorative finish. All aggregates are decorative when mixed with resin, as the resin enhances the natural colour of the stone. Mix and match different colours to create a finish that matches your brickwork or overall style of the property. Resin bound aggregates can be used to create patterns and detailing that is impossible to achieve with other driveway finishes.
Our advice is to play around with some samples when designing the perfect driveway. Sketch out your design and see how it looks on paper. Don’t be afraid to mix and match colours!
