Stone Pathway and Gravel Suppliers

Five factors to address when you consider landscaping options:

  • Cost effectiveness.
  • Function.
  • Appearance.
  • Ease of installation.
  • Maintenance levels.

If you have a modest budget then you’ll be able to set aside the more expensive travertine or marble paving solutions but this does not mean poor quality, charmless landscaping materials.

Gravel suppliers like us appreciate the quality, value for money, low maintenance, easy to install appeal of stone and gravel products. Yes, we like landscaping bark, cobbles, pebbles and setts too but we recommend gravel pathways because they provide a vital attribute: Winter safety.

Walking to and from the car, from the shed to the back door or putting the rubbish out can become treacherous in bad weather and whilst stone and gravel products may be among the least expensive they are top of the list when you need underfoot purchase.

The ice, frost and snow cannot create a solid sheet across gravel pathways as they can on larger, level paving or concrete surfaces.The movement, crunch and angular nature of the many gravels we are proud to stock make the journey from A to B less precarious.

We recommend a 20mm stone and gravel solution because smaller sizes can compact more easily and therefore are more prone to creating a surface to freeze on to.

Landscaping bark is equally inexpensive but as we know, this can make for a slippery path when sodden and coated with leaves. You may also collect it on your footwear and traipse it indoors.

Walking over turf either means being splattered with mud or sliding on bald patches and the blades can’t withstand the power of the weather. If you look to sand this can make walking and not collecting half the path contents on your footwear a challenge.

As trusted gravel suppliers, we stock outstanding locally sourced products and ones from further afield. Every stone and gravel option is selected for its functionality, aesthetic qualities and value. You’ll find nothing less than the best at our Tadley, Newbury and Windlesham sites, that’s true of our services as much as our products.
