There are few features you can invest in that provide as much as value as new driveways. They can drastically improve kerb appeal, provide you with a new centrepiece for a front-facing landscape gardening scheme, and safeguard vehicles and visitors arriving to your home on-foot. Our Crawley based team of veteran landscapers work with a range of different materials, designing attractive driveways in an array of different styles, to suit all budgets, tastes and practical requirements.
Covering large swathes of West Sussex, Surrey and London, Slade Landscapes is known for its impressive experience and formidable work ethic. As seen over on our TrustATrader page, clients rave about the results we deliver, whether building something ultra-modern, or with a traditional, rustic kind of charm.
Boost Kerb Appeal
Old, shabby or damaged driveways can prove a bit of an eye-sore. Every time you return from venturing outdoors, you might be filled with a sense of disappointment, knowing your driveway isn’t doing right by your property and its potential. New driveways can be transformational, attracting the admiration of passers-by, and giving the right impression to anyone who might be looking to make an offer on your home, should you ever want to sell up.
Some driveways just aren’t fit for the purpose you have in mind. They might be poorly optimised, cutting down on the usable space you have to play with. Some driveways in and around Crawley also present a hazard to vehicles and visitors, with loose stone, potholes or uneven surfacing; they might also struggle with dealing with heavy rainfall, collecting standing water. Our landscapers can help level driveways up by seeing all these issues rectified.
Properties with newer driveways are proven to fetch higher prices than those with neglected, dilapidated driveways. This means that bringing in our Crawley based landscapers to design you a new one constitutes a long-term investment you can immediately enjoy. Most buyers simply want to move into a home with minimal “fixing up” involved.
Our landscape gardening specialists cover the entirety of Surrey, West Sussex and London. As with everything we do, new driveways are bespoke: always informed by your ideas and inspiration. From first point of contact, we’ll provide expert advice on the different layouts, designs and materials you can opt for. When work begins, we’ll manage every stage of the job – from excavation and ground preparation, to the installation itself. We can even provide on-going maintenance, e.g schedule in regular jet washing, and handle any repairs that might be required down the line.
We carefully select and train our landscapers to ensure they meet the standard of work that’s expected of us by clients in and around Crawley. We’ll never bring in subcontractors, who might not have the same level of pride in the driveways they build.
Block Paving Driveways
One of the most popular materials used for modern driveways is block paving. We source ours from Marshalls, a market-leader manufacturer. High-end without the price tag, Marshalls’ catalogue of pavers allows us to create eye-catching, vibrant designs. Alongside its sought after aesthetic, block paving is easy to repair and allows for simple access to underground utilities. It’s also durable, sustainable, low maintenance and porous, allowing it to deal with even the most extreme of weather conditions.
Another fantastic option our Crawley landscapers recommend is the resin-bound driveway, especially if budget is a concern. Boasting many of block paving’s most appealing attributes, it uses aggregates and a resin coat to create a permeable surface that is highly resistance to cracking. Quick to install, they can be walked upon in just 6 hours.
All our driveways come with five-year guarantees as standard, for your peace of mind. So if you live anywhere in the South East, and are looking to add value and kerb appeal to your property, contact us on 01293 972 086. We’re always willing to discuss your ideas, and answer questions on different materials, or logistical aspects of the project.
