As probably the cheapest form of driveway paving, loose gravel is favoured by many developers who are looking to preserve project costs and typifies the age-old adage of ‘you get what you pay for’.
Generally fine until you walk or drive on it, which somewhat defeats its objectives, the loose gravel is normally laid onto a compacted stone sub-base although quite often the aggregate is laid directly onto soft landscaping.
With an extremely limited life-span, where additional stone appears to be eaten up by the sub-base, loose gravel represents poor on-going value and is eminently susceptible to potholing and weed growth.
