Picture of Low Maintenance Gravel

One of the easiest landscaping materials to install and maintain is gravel. For domestic and commercial driveways, the versatility, durability and undoubted kerb appeal makes gravel a favourite.

Gravel suppliers like our teams at Tadley, Newbury and Windlesham are happy to discuss your requirements and design schemes so that you can confidently achieve your landscaping goals. We have years of product knowledge, experience and expertise so we give you the highest levels of customer service, outstanding products and exceptional value for money.

We’re proud to stock local products including South Cerney Gravel and Moonstone Gravel and those from further afield.

There is an array of textures, sizes, shapes and colours so that your gravel can reflect your personality. Traditional browns and creams, contemporary blues, turquoises, pinks and plums, and monochrome choices from leading firms are readily available at Rivar Sand and Gravel.

You can take most of the gravels away with you (some have a lead time) or we’ll deliver at your convenience.

Size matters

Gravel suppliers like us know that the larger the gravel chippings are, the less prone they are to settle in to a single smooth layer. Therefore, it is more sensible to use the 20-5mm gravels than the 10mm alternatives.

This also aids winter safety. As ice and frost cannot form a sheen over the gravel as they can with paving or tarmac, this makes transit easier, both on foot and in vehicle.

Do the groundwork today, save maintenance time later

Getting the preparation work correct is vital.

For successful weed control we recommend that a layer of weed membrane is placed over the soil so that any weeds which may otherwise strive for daylight are hampered in their efforts.

The gravel is then laid on top of the membrane. Which would you rather do – relax in the summer sunshine or attend to avoidable weeding tasks?

For a 50m X 1m roll it’s £79.95.

A 50m X 2m full roll costs £125.00.

The 50m X 4.2m roll is just £210.

Reliable gravel framework

Core Drive is a cost effective and essential ancillary product for gravel driveways. It provides an almost invisible gravel framework that features honeycomb wells for tidiness and supports vehicle weight comfortably. The risk of ruts is diminished and consequently, the maintenance demands are lessened.

Core Drive is supplied by gravel suppliers in connectable 1200mm X 800mm sheets at £17.40 per sheet.

Another simple and economic option is to install round top edging which helps to retain gravel in the driveway space. Vienna colour edging at 910mm x 150mm is £5.24 per piece.
