Transforming a Gravel Driveway using X-Grid which stops Gravel Migration
Black X-Grid is permeable and porous, it complies with SUDs regulations and it’ll protect and reinforce the ground while maintaining and encouraging natural drainage systems.
Wanting the exterior of your home – especially your driveway – too look warm and inviting is prerogative. Not only does this make a good impression on passers-by and visitors, but in the long-term it’s likely to add to the value of your home too.
Our homeowners on this project were fed up of their cracked tarmac driveway which was full of weeds and exceptionally unappealing. They wanted a solution was easy, quick and that wouldn’t not only leave their home looking great, but also leave some spare cash in their wallet too.
As one of the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly solutions in the industry, it made sense to recommend our X-Grid.
The homeowners on this project decided to tackle the job themselves and as X-Grid is easy to fix and lay, there’s no reason you can’t too. Please be aware though, if you’re not a skilled tradesman and you need to remove a previous tarmac driveway covering before starting your X-Grid project, we would recommend you seek professional help.
They removed the tarmac and levelled out the ground before laying a protective sheet and beginning the installation of 130sqm of black X-Grid.
The homeowners had previously chosen gravel as their X-Grid filling as they believed it would provide an aesthetically pleasing finish which fitted in well with the surrounding homes and environment. However, rather than just filling their X-Grids, they decided to do something a little different.
As well as being a practical installation, X-Grid can be decorative too. Rather than filling all of the grids, the homeowners decided to leave a few empty and use our delineators, or parking markers, to create a beautiful pattern on their driveway.
As you can see on the right, the driveway has been completely transformed from its former condition and they’ve created a look that’s completely unique and looks great even though they were on a budget.
