What is the best low maintenance driveway?

A driveway that requires very little maintenance is a dream come true for both homeowners and those in the commercial sphere. Some driveway types require much more maintenance than others, taking up both time and money to stay looking fresh. If you’re looking for driveway material that once it’s down, you can pretty much leave to its own devices, here are our top picks for you.

Imprinted concrete driveways

Imprinted concrete driveways require very little maintenance and a huge advantage of this material is that you’re very very unlikely to get any weeds growing through, compared with something like block paving. This is because there aren’t actually any spaces or gaps for the weeds to break through as the name suggests, concrete is laid and then a pattern is simply imprinted upon it before it dries.

At Premier Surfacing, we offer a wide variety of pattern imprinted concrete paving styles to suit any property. Be it modern, traditional or contemporary. Our surveyor will offer you advice on design, layout and technical aspects of the installation. We also provide a 5 year guarantee depending on the work carried out.

Resin-bound driveways

Resin bound driveways are another great example of low maintenance driveways and again, weeds should not be a problem with resin driveways providing the surface is kept clean. All you need to do is jet wash or a hose clean and swept to ensure the surface remains looking tip-top.

Resin bound driveways are ideal for spaces which are on an incline where you still want that gravelly vibe. They are a great alternative to tarmac, blocks, slabs and concrete paving and the inherent texture of bonded gravel makes it the ideal choice for non-slip and anti-skid surfaces. Another added advantage is that, during dry weather, there isn’t the issue that’s commonly found with gravel driveways of dust being kicked up by cars.

Resin bondingcan be more expensive than other types of driveways so that’s something to keep in mind when deciding which option to choose.

We are specialists in resin bound driveways, patios and footways and these types of driveways are popular because they’re both attractive and durable.
