We have a full range of paving solutions to choose from and our hard landscaping specialists work with a full range of traditional and modern materials.
Beneath, we list a selection of popular driveway and patio mediums to help you make the right decision of what type of surface would work best for you.
Tarmac - A cheap, flexible option made up of rock, shale and asphalt cement. Tarmac is highly durable and can be mixed with a dye to give a more pleasing and personalised appearance to your Croydon driveway.
Paving Slabs - Paving slabs come in many sizes, shapes and colours. With a modern natural stone look, the final finish becomes a visual asset to any home. With a durability that even outlasts concrete, good quality slabs require little maintenance and are perfect for all patio and paving applications.
Gravel – Ideal for the fast installation of a Croydon driveway or paving area. Compared to most other materials, grading the area is less intensive with gravel. It also offers fine tyre traction in poor weather, making it an affordable and effective landscaping choice.
Concrete – Suitable for creating a longer lasting driveway or paving area than asphalt and usually requires less maintenance. Made up of cement, gravel and sand, concrete is ideal for the Croydon homeowner looking for a more straightforward solution. Pattern imprinted concrete can be used as an alternative for creating a more stylish finish.
Pebbles - Unlike gravel, pebbles are less bumpy for daily use of a driveway. A pebble driveway has better drainage and, like gravel, pebbles provide great traction in icy and wet weather. Pebbles come in many different colours and the final effect works seamlessly with surrounding landscaping themes around your Croydon property.
Brick - A brick driveway or patio area is a far more effective and eye-catching solution than traditional materials such as tarmac. The bricks used are usually interlocking pavers or recycled bricks. This adds character to the finished driveway and the material is just as durable as concrete when laid professionally.
