Gravel driveways often benefit from the addition of a rumble strip. A rumble strip is a section of hardstanding (usually block paving or reclaimed stone setts) which is installed at the entrance of the driveway. 
 
The rumble strip is aesthetically pleasing and also provides an area where any bits of gravel that get caught on the car tyres can drop off and easily be swept back onto the driveway. 
 
If gates are installed the rumble strip tends to be run from the pavement to the gate line.

The choice of edging material for resin bound gravel driveways and stabilised gravel driveways is extremely important. 
 
There are a large number of choices available and we can help you select the right solution for your property and your budget. 
 
The most simple (and most cost effective) solution is to install a metal or treated timber edge. This solution is particularly recommended for large areas where the cost of kerb or setts edging is prohibitive. Generally though, these edgings don’t offer much aesthetic appeal as they are very narrow and do not make a feature of the edging as other choices would.
