Have you heard of Marropave Driveway Stabiliser?

If not, then prepare to be amazed and charmed by its capabilities to make your outdoor space look more aesthetically pleasing as it delivers optimum functionality.

  • Marropave is one of the leading driveway materials and it makes the domestic or commercial outdoor spaces visually appealing.
  • Marropave looks a little like honeycomb and it is made from 100% recycled materials.
  • It is a strong and stabilising framework for grass, sand and gravel for paths, driveways and in car parks.
  • It offers maximum drainage for driveways and paths in rather soggy or waterlogged areas.


Marropave is extremely easy to lay and is lightweight but it’s a heavyweight at taking the strain of cars and pedestrian traffic. In fact, tests discovered that it could bear 350 tonnes per square metre.

  • It is fully compliant with planning regulations.
  • The framework encourages stronger grass growth.
  • It is tailored to house gravel and to control the gravel’s travelling capabilities on the driveway or path.
  • It prevents ruts in driveways and paths. All in all, it is one of most versatile and useful driveway materials.


Marropave Driveway Stabiliser is available in a range of colours. Rivar Sand and Gravel supply this revolutionary product per metre squared.

We know it’s the height of summer and you’d rather not contemplate the icy frosty mornings but their time is once again looming. Get prepared ahead of time so that you can alleviate some of Mother Nature’s more troublesome stresses and purchase rock salt.

This substance is a proven and preferred way to de-ice and defrost ground when it is scattered and it leaves a gritty residue so that you won’t give neighbours and acquaintances your own special display of Bolero as you start your journey to work.

Another cold and wet weather candidate for your attention is biodegradable hessian. Sold in sheets this is used to cover concrete and paving to protect them from frost and we also sell hessian bags (empty) which can be filled with sand to help with flood prevention. Ideal for new driveway construction where the project needs to be protected from frost or adverse weather during the construction phase.

If you are in the process of deciding which driveway materials to use then please don’t neglect the important matter of weed prevention. You won’t enjoy your pristine and perfect driveway becoming spoilt by weeds poking their leaves into the air defiantly so Rivar Sand and Gravel would like you to think about Drivetex.

It is a weed resistant ground sheet which works long term to preserve the appearance of your driveway. It can also be used on paths, patios and under paving. Not only does it save you from additional work but it is an unseen ally in the fight against weeds.

These products are too good to ignore.
