Gravel & Chippings
Driveway and Footpath Gravel
Angular gravel and chippings that are typically 14 or 20mm in size tend to be the most suitable for driveways, this is because the pieces lock together when driven on and are less likely to rut. To avoid the gravel eventually crushing down under the weight of vehicles, choose a product that consists of either a granite, basalt or flint as these are much harder wearing.
Again for footpaths, angular chippings are better as the pieces lock together when walked on. We find that 10mm gravels or larger are the most popular for footpaths as these don't get stuck in shoe treds or wash away easily in heavy rain.
Golden Gravel 20mm (known typically as Corn Flint) is a very popular choice for driveways throughout the UK due to its hard wearing nature and relatively low price.
Decorative Garden Gravel
Gravel can also be used to spruce up borders and flower beds around the garden. If you want to keep the weeds at bay, you can also lay an underlying membrane. The membrane is tough enough to suppress weeds, but is permeable to allow rainwater to soak through the gravel to the soil.
How much will I need?
For both of the above applications, our recommended minimum laying depth is 50mm (about 2 inches).
