– Gravel driveways
– Aggregate concrete driveways
– Exposed aggregate driveways
Think about it. What’s the first thing that you see when you approach your property? Your driveway! Does yours make a striking first impression?
Just imagine…rolling slowly up the crisply crunching gravel as you approach your sanctuary, arriving home at the end of a long day, gliding along on your new driveway – even, smooth and beautifully colour matched to every aspect of your home’s style. SuperScapeS can help you make this driveway dream a reality.
– Is your property rural or suburban? Different areas require different functionality and call for different materials and looks.
– What style is your home?
– What kind and how many vehicles will be parking and using the driveway?
– Do you require a turning circle?
– Do you have existing trees or vegetation that you would like to preserve?
– What budget do you have in mind?
It’s vitally important to go over all of these details before you start so that you get the best design, the best materials for your needs and the best result, all within your budget.
For those in a rural area with a longer driveway, a fine gravel like Lancefield topping is ideal. It can be compacted for a durable, low maintenance finish which looks outstanding and handles all weather conditions.
Gravel is the most budget friendly. SuperScapeS can create long, curved driveways that invite further exploration, with drainage and/or edging, taking into consideration existing vegetation.
Edging helps to finish off the look of the driveway, either creating a colour contrast that really pops or matching with the driveway for simple elegance.
Paving can be used to great effect here and there are many different looks you can achieve with shape, colour and size of pavers. Edging is also practical. It helps to make a defined edge for yard maintenance and so it’s easier to keep the whole area weed-free.
For suburban properties with a short and sweet driveway, concrete driveways are practical, long lasting and look great.
You might like to use exposed aggregate for a fashionable, functional alternative to concrete.
Aggregates can vary greatly in fineness of grain, that is the size of the pebbles that will be exposed in the finish, and therefore can achieve many different looks. A fine grain is more suitable if you’ll be walking on it in bare feet, however a coarse grain drains more effectively and is safer for sloped driveways.
Did you know that exposed aggregate comes in many different colours to suit your home, whatever style you have – modern, heritage or country to name a few? You can use different coloured pebbles against different coloured concrete bases to achieve endless colour combinations and interesting textures, allowing you to make your driveway blend in to its surrounds or stand out depending on your preferences. The options are endless.
Exposed aggregate is known for its robustness. It is resistant to abrasion and easy to keep clean – simply sweep off dirt and spray the driveway with a garden hose.
A grand driveway is the first thing you see when you approach your home and it sets the tone for the rest of your property. Make it an experience worth relishing that gets noticed by all who pass by.
SuperScapeS have the experience necessary to create an entirely new driveway for you with your chosen material, design and finish. Or we can resurface your existing driveway, giving it new colour, different texture, variation and most of all new life to really enhance the look of your property.
